Michael Bloch, an undergraduate student at the University of California, Berkeley, is studying at the Haas School of Business and Political Science, and is part of UC Berkeley’s law fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta. Since joining college, he’s been debating of whether to go to law school or not – and the result is the newly published book “Learning From Precedent” which takes a novel approach at considering the law school option. The book has a Foreword by the Senior Assistant Dean for Admissions, Financial Aid, and Career Planning at the University of Michigan Law School, and includes interviews with top law school graduates like the President of the ACLU, a former SEC Chairman, a billionaire entrepreneur, a former Governor and other luminaries.

Talking to the media, author Michael Bloch said, “I knew that before committing to law school, I wanted to speak with a variety of top lawyers in different fields to decide if law school would be right for me…As I was speaking to these acclaimed individuals from so many industries, I figured other students would also want to hear what the lawyers had to say … I figured that the best way to figure out if a career is right for me is to talk to those who are further down the path …that’s why I titled the book ‘Learning From Precedent.’”

As to whether Bloch himself would pursue law school or not, he says he might be applying for joint JD/MBA programs after finishing college.

Sarah Zearfoss wrote in the Foreword of the book, “After tackling the talking-to-lawyers project in the most thorough way I can imagine … Michael Bloch’s taken it upon himself to share the information with the world at large … There is no question that readers of the results will be exposed to both an incredibly wide range of post-law school careers and personality types.”
