For the last few years, as an end-of-the-year gift to the Law School community, we've been collecting book recommendations from our eminent faculty. Our alumni and our Goodreads friends receive the recommendations first, but we also love to share this gift with the rest of the world. As usual, the faculty's responses this year ranged from the serious and topical (tomes on history, current events, and [surprise!] law) to the whimsical (westerns, magical realism, mystery, and more). Check out the 2012 faculty recommendations here, or become our friend on Goodreads and browse a wealth of Law School-related books and recommendations from past years.
