Cinema on Trial: The Law as Portrayed in Movies
- Many films have been made about the legal system, often involving a critical trial or other legal proceeding at the heart of their stories. Have the filmmakers accurately portrayed the law and how it works, or are they "guilty" of misrepresenting legal processes, for dramatic or other purposes? This course will offer a recommended viewing list of films for students to watch between classes. In class, we will put these films "on trial", through discussion and debate, to determine how realistic they are, as well as to assess their artistic merits.
