DESCRIPTION

For over 70 years, prospective and enrolled law students have been assigned to read a text that prepares them what they are about to encounter. That text is Bramble Bush. This classic answers questions that all students have when starting law school, and virtually takes them inside the classroom like no other text. Karl N. Llewellyn offers understanding on the context of law, techniques on how to study the law without losing heart, and how to engage in the material within the classroom. The Bramble Bush is required reading at many top tier law schools and is recommended by many Law School Deans for the insight it provides to new students. An outgrowth of Professor Llewellyn's introductory lectures at Columbia University School of Law, Bramble Bush continues to be the best introduction to the study of law for both potential and enrolled law students. This edition includes an introduction by its editor Steve Sheppard, the William H. Enfield Professor of Law at University of Arkansas's School of Law. He is a faculty adviser to the International Law Society, the Journal of Islamic Law and Culture, the Environmental Law Society, and the H.L.A. Hart Society. His service includes enlistment and commission in the U.S. Coast Guard Reserve and membership in the Iraq Advisory Group of the National Democratic Institute for International Affairs, in 2005.
