Scott Turow was a struggling novelist and university teacher when he decided to go to law school, which he admits proved to be the great break of his literary career. He has published ten bestselling works of fiction, starting with Presumed Innocent, and has also written two non-fiction books about the law, including his first published book, One L, about his experiences as a law student. He is a former president of the Guild.
