Law Student Picks for Winter Break Reading

Congratulations to all Brandeis Law students on wrapping up final exams!  As we close our doors for the Winter break, now is an excellent time to take the opportunity to practice some self-care and relax. One of the best ways to decompress is with a good book.

To help us with this, Abigail Proffitt recently took some time in the Washer Lounge Library (open to all students to check out non-legal books) to find some engaging reads for the break.  Proffitt, a 3L, is a Student Assistant at the Law Library, and knows her way around books and reading.  Coming originally from the Tennessean part of Appalachia, she is involved in the Appalachian Law Caucus here in the Law School.  A major in English as an undergraduate at UofL, she was the editor for the Honors’ program’s literary magazine The White Squirrel.

Referencing Voltaire’s quote "Perfect is the enemy of good," she suggests that this is a good time to “celebrate progress over perfection,” and reminds us that “pushing yourself too hard will lead to diminishing returns.”

So take this opportunity to relax, and have a look here at the books Proffitt selected in the Library’s blog.
