Law School Graduation Gifts

By

The Best Law School Graduation Gift: After 20 years in this business of law librarianship, I have made the transition from recommending that you give your new lawyer an excellent legal dictionary or legal research treatise to recommending, with utter and absolute seriousness, that you give your new lawyer a copy of DSM-IV-TR (the new one isn’t expected out until after 2010). If they want to further their education on the subject, and earn a few CLE credits in the process, OSB had a March 2006 CLE Seminar called “Representing Clients with Personality Disorders” (receiving rave (not raving) reviews from my library’s patrons) and there was also a 2004 CLE Seminar on “Working With Difficult People.” Trust me. This will be money and time well spent.
