Law and Lawyers in Popular Culture

The Video Collection

The Library owns over 900 DVDs and videos of feature films, television series, and documentaries featuring lawyers. Although a large number are the typical Scene from To Kill a Mockingbirdcourtroom dramas one would expect, many have little or nothing to do with the actual practice of law. (Of course, one could argue that courtroom dramas don't either.) From Miranda on Sex in the City to Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law, the intent of the collection is to depict the broad scope of the image of the lawyer in Anglo-American popular culture.

To Kill a Mockingbird, 1962
