An excellent and interesting series of stories that explore complicated legal questions and the conflicting principles that make them so difficult.

A strange way of presenting law parables, but it really works. Most of the time I agreed Ruth the author's commentary, but when I didn't, I found the layout made it easier to realize why I disagreed, not just that I did. Great way to get people interested in the information and to keep with it

Eric Blair (AKA George Orwell) as a young magistrate grappling with every legal issue you can think of in a non-system. A book of morality and ethics that doesn't preach. Pretty nice choice from my Prof--easy to read and a nice supplement to the course work.
