In Law 101, Jay M. Feinman examines the major subject areas relevant to first-year law school, such as constitutional law, torts, contracts, property law, and criminal law. His explanations are straightforward and thorough. Cases are cited, popular law-school cases that I've already started to recognize in my pre-law school readings.

Feinman's book is likely not a replacement for the first year of law school, but it does seem to cover the basic subject areas. Definitely enlightening.
