The New York Bar Picture Book is a visual bar study dream

I was delighted to receive a gorgeous copy of an illustrated guide to the topics on the New York Bar Exam: The New York Bar Picture Book, by Wela Quan.

It’s a subject-by-subject tour of New York law, all laid out in illustrated outlines with cartoons, sketches, and comic touches.

The book is a great example of the power of visuals to make the heavy text of bar study outlines into something light, inviting, and understandable.

Wela, who wrote and drew the book, is a former corporate lawyer, based in New York.
