I hate how most law-related films and shows are about criminal cases.

No one has mentioned the film "Murder in the First".

Excellent and compelling courtroom drama.

Boston Legal is actually frightfully entertaining for a while... it gets a bit predictable after watching a couple of series though.

I totally agree.

Altogether 'LESBIAN' (don't worry, if u don't watch Boston Legal, you won't understand that)

Not sure if anyone has mentioned it yet, but the BBC adaptation of “Bleak House” is amazing – sadly it doesn’t paint a pretty picture of the law :rolleyes: .

I just saw Bloody Sunday, on the killing of thirteen people and the wounding of a further fourteen (one of whom was to die shortly afterwards) in Derry in 1972 by the British Army. "Rough justice"

Easier to sensationalise.

The Green Mile is another amazing prison/ miscarriage of justice film. I cried for days though...

The Shawshank Redemption? That's bloody brilliant

It's not really about law though, is it...

No, but it is about justice. Which the OP also asked for.

Does anyone remember a short series called 'Trust'. Starred Robson Green and documented life in a City firm. It's fairly entertaining if a little unrealistic in the sense that no one seems to do any real work. Anyway, if you want to see it you'll have to get the DVD as I've never seen it repeated. Worth a watch though.

Haven't watched any, but they are supposed to be subtle legal themes I think at Warwick, which are usually discussed afterwards, a list is here:

Of all these films and TV series, The Innocence Project seems the most fascinating. I went to the Bristol Open Day and there was a tutorial on this very project.
The TV program is reviewed here

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Inn...es%29#Episodes

I am able to download Programs 1 and 2 on Emule (almost done after 2 weeks!). But there are no complete sources for Programs 3 and 4 and 5 ... anyone know where I might get them. 6,7,8 not even listed on Emule. Can't find them as torrents. Don't seem to be available in DVD. Thanks.
