The Lawyer's Bookcase
Welcome to The Lawyer’s Bookcase
IMS|The Focal Point’s consultants are experts in litigation through both our experience and education; we add to the former through working with our clients, and we add to the latter through reading voraciously. Through this monthly post, we hope to share some of the most informative, intriguing, and insightful books that we have encountered as we strive to stay on the cutting edge of litigation strategy. We encourage all of our clients to explore these engaging perspectives on the diverse repertoire of skills that make for an effective trial lawyer.
It is what you read when you don't have to that determines what you will be when you can't help it.
A mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone, if it is to keep its edge.
—George R.R. Martin
Reading furnishes the mind only with materials of knowledge; it is thinking that makes what we read ours.
