Lawyers' Poker explores the interface between poker strategy and law practice, showing how poker tactics can be applied to comparable situations in litigation. In law practice, many dependent variables defy isolation, making it difficult to validate even the most well-recognized truisms. Poker, however, is a game of repetition, meaning that the maxims are constantly being tested and refined.

Steven Lubet is a lawyer who’s also a Professor of Law at Northwestern University. He’s written a book titled Lawyer’s Poker: 52 Lessons that Lawyers Can Learn from Card Players. Both Sparky and I really enjoyed it. I couldn’t put it down.

Great poker players are master tacticians. Not only do they calculate odds with lightning speed and astonishing precision, but they also cunningly anticipate and manipulate the actions of their adversaries. In short, they boast skills that every lawyer can envy. This highly entertaining work might best be summed up as "better lawyering through poker." Steven Lubet shows exactly how the tactics of the poker table can be adapted to litigation, negotiation, and virtually every aspect of law practice. In a series of engaging and informative lessons, Lubet describes concepts like "betting for value," "slow playing," and "reverse bluffing," and explains how they can be used by lawyers to win their cases. The best card players, like the best lawyers, have a knack for getting their adversaries to react exactly as they want, and that talent separates the winners from the losers. Lawyers' Poker is an irresistible guide to successful lawyering and an enjoyable read for anyone with an interest in law. No poker knowledge required.
The greatest value of Lawyers Poker is being able to see your opponent with a different set of lenses. Lawyers Poker can be applied to anyone including those involved with negotiating, selling, and situations that have become litigious. I suggest taking your time to read each chapter to grasp the point being made by Mr. Lubet. Inevitably, a light bulb will go off and your view of the world is different.

A recent business situation motivated me to read through the section called SPADES Digging for Information, which provided valuable guidance for knowing how much information to reveal to my opponent. Most people reveal too much, myself included. This section required me to re-evaluate my conduct to show more restraint to avoid not being taken advantage of by the other party.

I'm not a poker player. But after reading this book, I suddenly have an interest in the game.
The only thing more fantastic than this book is its author (Steven Lubet, whose other writings can be frequently found online). They are both awesome! Thanks to Professor Lubet's outstanding book "Lawyers' Poker," I have already won lots of large poker pots and am about to win a big litigation case. My only regret is that, one day, this book might fall into the hands of my (more-skillful) opponents. But, until then, I will always have the upper hand!
I practiced law for 30 years, most of which I was a litigator. From that perspective, Professor Lubet's book is a wonderful metaphor for learning trial practice at its most essential level. These are complementary skills that teach practitioners of both poker-playing and lawyering about probability, risk, reward, and dealing with opponents and less-than-perfect hands. These skills are best learned in a small-bore environment where lessons can be learned and reflected on without risk to one's clients.
You have to really know poker to appreciate this; for those that do, looks like a great book.
book is fine and great if you play Texas hold-um! If not it's not the book for you.
Well researched and good stuff in the book. Not the right choice for a non card player.
This is an unusual packaging of standard lawyer "wisdom" that lawyers with more than a couple of years' experience will long since have read elsewhere. But it is interesting for what it tells neophyte poker players about how experienced players think.
Book was ordered as a gift. Arrived promptly and hopefully it will prove useful to recipient.
The author is a law professor and writer of a textbook on trial advocacy (Modern Trial Advocacy: Analysis and Practice). In this book, the author contends that tactics used in poker can be adapted to provide lawyers with various ideas to improve their law practice inside and outside a courtroom. Using numerous examples from poker playing and the practice of law, the author presents an entertaining and informative look at the practice of law and legal advocacy from a perspective very different from that usually taken in most law textbooks and practice manuals.

The primary audience for the book is lawyers, but law students and paralegal assistants could find the book informative and useful. Although the book is written in a lively and engaging style that many non-lawyers would find readable, it is written in a manner that assumes the reader is knowledgeable about the legal profession and the practice of law. I recommend this book for anyone interested in a different perspective on the practice of law. Persons involved in mediation, arbitration, and other forms of alternative dispute resolution also might find this book worth reading.
