UC Irvine law school students find out this evening what they should do with their post-lawyering days--you know, when they can really make the big bucks--as lawyer-turned-bestselling novelist Scott Turow (Presumed Innocent, The Burden of Proof) shares his secrets.

Unlike his adaptation fees from Hollywood, the event is free.

Though known mostly as a novelist, Turow also wrote the nonfiction books about his experiences with the law: One L. and Ultimate Punishment: A Lawyer's Reflections on Dealing with the Death Penalty.

He also co-authored the interactive book Hard Listening, which is about the all-star writer/musician band the Rock Bottom Remainders that has also included as members Stephen King, Dave Barry, Mitch Albom and many other English-language authors. Their first performance was at the American Booksellers Convention in Anaheim in 1992.

Now Turow is back in Orange County six months after the publication of his latest novel, Identical. He's scheduled to speak from 4:30 to 5:30 p.m. in the UCI Student Center's Crystal Cove Auditorium. A reception follows. While it's free and open to the public, you should RSVP to kcoleman@law.uci.edu to ensure a seat.

As far as compensation is concerned, lawyers are like realtors, 2% of them make 90% of the money.
