For many of us, the new year is a time of New Year's resolutions. We want to drink less coffee, move more often, start a new hobby or simply read more. The following list of nine recommended legal books (random order except for the first place) may help you maintain your last resolution.

9. Lincoln lawyer Michael Connelly

Mickey Haller runs a law firm... in the backseat of the titular Lincoln. He drives it to court, where he represents street dealers, drunk drivers and recidivists. Unexpectedly, he becomes the defender of a wealthy playboy from Beverly Hills, accused of rape and battery. Although the case seems simple at first glance, the client's past may turn out to be deadly dangerous for Haller.

8. Pelican Report, John Grisham

United States. Two Supreme Court judges die in unexplained circumstances. The FBI and CIA cannot identify any suspects. A law student from New Orleans identifies potential perpetrators. He creates a report presenting the results of his investigation, thus becoming a target of the killers.

7. Law Firm, John Grisham

The second position of the author of the "Pelikan Report" in the ranking. A legal thriller depicting the fate of a young lawyer, Mitchell, who receives a lucrative job offer at a boutique law firm. Shortly thereafter, the FBI informs him that the law firm is involved in money laundering. Mitchell receives an offer he can't refuse.

6. Modus Operandi of perpetrators of murders, Monika Całkiewicz

The author analyzed over 100 court files relating to crimes against life committed in the years 2000–2008, recognized by the Court of Appeal in Warsaw. The author's professional experience and extensive knowledge in the field of substantive criminal law, procedural law, criminology and criminalistics are reflected in the interdisciplinary approach to the issue of the modus operandi of murder perpetrators.

5. Influence people. Theory and practice, Robert Cialdini

  • How to get someone to change their behavior?
  • How to protect ourselves from other people's influence on our decisions?

“Influence people. Theory and Practice” contains answers to these questions and much more. It is not without reason that the book has already sold 2,000,000 copies worldwide. Its author, a world-famous professor of psychology from Arizona, presents techniques of influencing others, as well as a number of tips on how to deal with manipulation and undesirable influence of other people. This is definitely a must-read for everyone, not just lawyers. It does not allow lawyers to fend off the attacks of fraudsters, and thus to visit the offices of legal advisors and lawyers less often...

4. Mediation. Theory and practice, Scientific editors: Ewa Gmurzyńska, Rafał Morek, Anna Cybulko, Michał Czapski, Agata Gójska, Stanisław Kordasiewicz, Adam Moniuszko, Anna Rosner, Agnieszka Siedlecka-Andrychowicz, Monika Stachura, Andrzej Szpor, Magdalena Tulibacka, Paweł Waszkiewicz, Aleksandra Winiarska , Magdalena Żurawska

The most comprehensive mediation manual on the Polish market. A compendium of knowledge and practical tips on resolving conflicts in various areas of social and legal relations. 

3. Pop culture icons and intellectual property law. How the famous protect their rights, Katarzyna Grzybczyk

How did regulations in the field of intellectual property law contribute to the success of Christian Louboutin, Mickey Mouse, Star Wars or Apple? Based on a number of colorful examples, the author shows the importance of IP law in creating contemporary market giants.

2. Entertainment of the 21st century and intellectual property law, Katarzyna Grzybczyk

Another item from Katarzyna Grzybczyk. The book introduces readers to the relationship between IP and many contemporary activities: social media, e-sports, and fanart. Based on interesting rulings, the author also shows how regulations regarding intellectual property law can limit us from developing certain hobbies, and ignorance of them can cause many problems.

1. Constitution of the Republic of Poland

Nothing to add, nothing to take away - a reading close to everyone, not only a lawyer. Interesting fact: constitution was recognized as one of the most popular words in 2020.
