Review: Law blog, the novel

The unmasking of the blogger known as Anonymous Lawyer was a scoop fit for the pages of the venerable New York Times. On his blog, he described himself as a "fictional hiring partner in a large law firm in a major city." In real life, he was a third-year law student at Harvard named Jeremy Blachman.

Now Blachman has turned his blog into a novel, "Anonymous Lawyer: A Novel," due out July 25. Howard Bashman has uncovered a prepublication review posted on the AutoAdmit discussion board. The reviewer's verdict, in a nutshell:

"This is going to be the 'One L' for 2Ls, summer associates, and biglaw attorneys. Except it’s funny. Very funny actually. ... I think that most people (or at least those with legal backgrounds) are going to read this primarily for the comedy and satire."

Who knows, maybe blogger Blachman is the next Scott Turow.
