Torts and Suds
by Peter Hotchkiss Lyons

After serving five years in the United States Marine Corps, Pete Leoni makes a career decision that causes him to make a transition from active duty as an infantry officer to becoming a struggling first-year law student. He matriculates into Rohring Hall School of Law, which is situated in an idyllic location in southern California. His classmates are a mixed lot of veterans, businessmen and women, and recent college graduates. Members of the faculty are intellectual misfits, as well as categorical geniuses. The dean is a miracle worker who literally prevents the school from imploding. This serves as a basis for a three-year rigorous academic journey filled with humorous vignettes.
