Movies and Books for New Law Students

On its website, Atlanta’s John Marshall Law School lists resources for new law students, including movies and books. Nice lists. Here they are:


The Verdict (1982)
A Civil Action (1998)
The Paper Chase (1973)
Twelve Angry Men (1957)
Inherit the Wind (1960)
Judgment at Nuremburg (1961)
To Kill a Mockingbird (1962)
Anatomy of a Murder (1959)
My Cousin Vinny (1992)

Websites One lawyer’s advice to incoming first-year law students. Information about, and records from, some of the most famous trials in history. Links to pre-law resources. From here, link to “Legislative Process: House” for information on how federal laws are made. Link to “hypertexts” and at the search field, type “Cardozo.” You will find a reproduction of important lectures delivered by Justice Benjamin Cardozo. Link to “Campus Life,” and then to “Selected Readings”. There you will find “The Path of the Law,” by Oliver Wendell Holmes, Jr., an address delivered at Boston University School of Law in 1897.
