Trial Ad at the Movies

Prof. James Tanford, who teaches Trial Advocacy at Indiana University, presents on his website a collection of transcripts of movie trial scenes "for entertainment and pedagogical purposes."

He also offers "the entirely subjective Tanford list of the top 100 trial movies of all time" here. You'll see the movies you'd expect ("A Few Good Men," "To Kill a Mockingbird") and some surprises (a Tarzan movie and a Three Stooges movie, for instance). Many happy hours of viewing -- and educational too!

UW students, remember that you can borrow many videos and DVDs through Summit -- free!
