Database of Law-Related Movies

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:

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!
