We all love a good law movie, right? Well, we’re in luck because lawyer and law librarian Ted Tjaden created a database of Law-Related Movies.
The 172 law-related movies on this site have been arbitrarily limited to those that contain one or more of the following features: interesting courtroom scenes, portrayal of lawyers, themes of justice or liberty, or discussion of substantive legal issues.
The pages have been divided into the following topics:
- “A to Z” List of Law-Related Movies
- Movies Organized by Substantive Law Subject
- Court Martial Movies
- Courtroom Dramas
- Inspirational Lawyer Movies
- Prison-Related Movies
- Top 10
These movies are great for entertainment purposes or may be useful for instruction, particularly the “movies organized by substantive law subject.”
If you find yourself in need of a break during exam study, you may want to focus your attention on a law-related movie to relax or test your ever-growing knowledge. While the Law Library may not own every title in the database, we do have an impressive collection of popular DVDs. Come check one out today!
