The Paper Chase

Peninsula Road Press is proud to publish the fortieth anniversary edition of The Paper Chase, the legendary novel about law school.

The Paper Chase is one of the most important books ever written about legal education in the United States. It captures the glory and pain of traditional teaching methods and law students' striving after career dreams in an iconic way. Law schools have changed since John Osborn wrote this classic novel, but it is still valuable to reflect on his unforgettable portrait of the system from which we have progressed.
