Summer Reading List

Suggested Readings for Incoming 1Ls


Suggested readings from some of the librarians in the Chastek Library at Gonzaga University School of Law. These are by no means required but they may be helpful to give you a feel for law school or the practice of law. 

During your first year of law school you will be doing an enormous amount of reading.  For the most part, it is what many might consider difficult reading, as opposed to "pleasure reading" (reading for fun).  Those of us in the Chastek Library would like to suggest that you do as much "pleasure reading" as you can this summer before the fall semester begins.
