On Second Thought For Tuesday, May 22, 2018

May 22, 2018

Some Georgia law schools want to appeal to more than their traditional law school students. In the fall, the University of Georgia begins offering a graduate degree program for non-lawyers. As schools broaden the appeal of the law, there is major concern about Georgia’s lawyer shortage, particularly in rural areas. We have seen a number of companies form that offer online legal services, but are these viable alternatives?


Need something to read this summer? On Tuesday, The Bitter Southerner magazine releases its list of the best southern books for the year. On Second Thought’s Virginia Prescott got literary recommendations from The Bitter Southerner's Chuck Reece and Kyle Jones. 

One of the books to make The Bitter Southerner’s list is Lightning Men by Atlanta-based author Thomas Mullen. The novel tells the story of Atlanta’s first black police officers. Mullen told On Second Thought’s Celeste Headlee about why he wanted to tell this story.
