Lawyers in Your Living Room!
When you have a spare minute to watch a movie, the Law Library does have a collection of movies. We try to collect movies that have something to do with the law-a courtroom scene, or a lawyer main character. We will also take suggestions if you can think of any important movies that we are missing. It is always interesting to see how lawyers are portrayed in popular culture. We’ve all heard countless lawyer jokes, but many fictional lawyers do get to be more than the stereotype.
The ABA released a book fairly recently about lawyers on TV called Lawyers in Your Living Room! Law on Television. It looks like a pretty entertaining introduction to how television shapes the public’s image of the legal profession. Thanks to the Law Librarian Blog for pointing the book out.
