Dramatic Courtroom Trials - Hollywood Style
Ended May 15

We will watch and then discuss five of the most famous courtroom trials ever produced by Hollywood (as ranked by the American Bar Association, no less), and then watch two episodes from the 2002 HBO series The Wire. Co-study leader Hank Buermeyer will introduce the films, explain how they were selected, and their corresponding filmographies. Co-study leader Tom Urgo, a multi-talented lawyer (for this course primarily civil and criminal law) will explain how Hollywood covers jury selection, overall legal strategy, opening and closing statements/arguments, expert witnesses, etc., and how these terms of law conform to reality. No reading materials required.
