No self-respecting trial lawyer can ignore the fabulous Litigation magazine, published by the ABA Section of Litigation. For years, it's raison d'etre has been substantive, timely articles, always written with wit and verve. And hardly ever a footnote!
I'm the proud owner of the three-volume collection of Litigation articles: Pretrial; Trial; and Special Problems and Appeals. Whether at home, the office, or in the library, these books should be consulted frequently and often. They're guaranteed to open your mind to new ideas.
