Those who like to use films as examples in class will enjoy a new book, Advocacy to Zealousness: Learning
Lawyering Skills from Classic Films, by Creighton’s Kelly Lynn Anders. Anders organizes twenty-six films according to an alphabetical list of the lawyering traits. She chose to restrict her choices to films made before the 1968 movie rating system was adopted, because later films may not be suitable for student audiences. Her list of classic films—all available on DVD—contains plot summaries and interesting nuggets of information about the films.
