Five Books on Happiness and the Law from Our Collection

What exactly is happiness? This post from VeryWell Mind explains that happiness is “an emotional state characterized by feelings of joy, satisfaction, contentment and fulfillment.” Psychologists and other scientists refer to happiness as “subjective well-being” and break it down into two components – a balance of emotions and life satisfaction. How can you tell if you’re happy? You might feel like you are living the life you wanted, that you have (or will) accomplish what you want in life, or that you are generally satisfied with your life.

All of these happiness-indicative feelings are possible in a law career, whether you’re starting out as a law student or a practicing attorney.  These five books from our collection give insight into lawyerly happiness and are available in print or as ebooks –
