Anyone in DC Want a Free Law Library?

E-mail Print PDF

A law firm located near Dupont Circle in Washington DC is giving away a thousand books from its library. [Click the image below for a link to the ad.]

 

You can get F.2d 500-999 and F. Supp. 2d 294-797 and create for yourself ...well, a very incomplete library that probably won't do you a great deal of good as a lawyer. Except, there is one use we can think of.

Are you a new lawyer in a solo practice or just partnered up with a couple other recent grads? Does your office reflect your meager capital investment? Then consider going down to this guy's office and picking up 200 or more books (200 is the minimum you can take). Then get some inexpensive bookcases and line the walls of your office with some fancy looking books.

Sure your practice doesn't really make use of them and the sets are incomplete, but do you think clients know that? Nope. Clients will just see a whole lot of law books and assume you must know a whole lot of laws, or at least do well enough for your clients to be able to afford all those books. Clients might not know what's in them, and we don't either, but we sure know they cost a lot.

[Alternatively, if you're a law school looking to boost its rank, remember that US News counts the total number of volumes in your library. Here's 1000 free books to help nudge your score up a little bit. There's definitely some schools in DC that could use the help. ...Lookin' at you, American University Washington College of Law.]
