Because of the number of you naming lawyer movies, I thought
y'all might be interested in seeing the list of movies in our
law school's video collection. These all feature
a lawyer, a trial, or some kind of commentary on justice or the
political system. Some have been specifically requested by the
professors of different subjects (such as Norma Rae, requested
by the Labor Law prof); and some, quite frankly, are here because
I got complaints from students with children that there weren't
any videos they could watch with their kids (hence, Ernest Goes
to Jail, and Alice in Wonderland....thank goodness, these were
inexpensive videos!)
These are available for free checkout by faculty, staff, and
students; some are also shown in class (and so, fall within the
copyright laws) by professors (the criminal law professor likes
to show Anatomy of a Murder; the Jurisprudence professor,
A Man For All Seasons).
I'm getting ready to order our next batch soon, and so would
welcome any comments or suggestions. We'll be getting Philadelphia,
The Pelican Brief, In the Name of the Father, Brother's Keeper,
and probably Jurassic Park (hey kids, this is what happens to
obnoxious lawyers!). ....And Justice For All, at least last year
when I ordered, was out of print; Compulsion hasn't yet come out
on video; and the other I'm dying to get, The Strange One (with
Ben Gazzara & George Peppard) - filmed on the beautiful campus
of our law school! - also isn't on video yet.
