Beyond One L: Stories About Finding Meaning and Making a Difference in Law is inspired by Scott Turow's One L, the classic account of first-year law student's experience at Harvard Law School. With an introduction by Turow, Beyond One L explores first-, second-, and third-year experiences in the decades since One L was published. It then moves beyond law school to tell the stories of taking the bar, searching for judicial clerkships, practicing law, and leaving law practice to become a teacher or judge. Story authors include lawyer Gerry Spence; Above the Law editor David Lat; Andrew McGlurg, author of One L of a Ride; law professors Ian Ayres, Stephen Carter, Deborah Waire Post, and Adrienne Wing; and judges Marilyn Skoglund, Donn Kessler, and Michael Zimmerman. The stories are about the moments in life that were game-changers — ones that changed the course of the authors' careers or brought them extraordinary meaning.
