When I started as a law librarian, I knew diddly about the law. To me, Shepard’s was a pie, a cite was for sore eyes, and don’t get me started on motions to suppress. The main reason I wrote The Accidental Law Librarian was because I figured there were others like me who stumbled into the profession.
How many others? Look at the testimonials in this February 2011 article. Note how often the word “accident” crops up.
