Feinman’s Law 101 is an excellent introduction to basic legal principles affecting everyday life and the subjects covered in the first year of law school. Feinman uses an informal question and answer format that is accessible, but not simplistic. As librarians, we are often confronted with the statement “just tell me what the law is” and rolled eyes when we cannot give a quick concise answer. This publication will be a good source to give to someone who wants to get a quick overview of an area of law. It will also be helpful in illustrating the complexities involved in any “simple” legal situation.
