Read the following books
Law School Confidential: read it, actually. Told me to highlight my casebooks in technicolor and buy a good bed. No lie. Not the most constructive.
One L: novel about Scott Turow's first year at Harvard. Yeah. Not gonna bother. Saw the Paperchase already.
Slaying the Law School Dragon: read through it. More about highlighting casebooks.
The Brethren: I think this is a John Grisham novel I read already. Yep, that'll help in law school. Oh, this is the Woodward book about the Supreme Court... ok, I'll read this as soon as I have any respect for Bob Woodward.
12 Angry Men (1957) Saw it. Classic. This will help me ... how?
The Accused (1988) Saw it. Ok. This will help me ... how?
… And Justice for All (1979) Missed it, but I doubt it will matter.
Class Action (1991) Missed it because I'm not a Travolta fan, but I doubt it will matter.
A Few Good Men (1992) You can't handle the truth: this will NOT help me in law school! "You want me on that wall, you need me on that wall..."
Inherit the Wind (1960) Saw it. Classic. This will help me ... become Clarence Darrow?
Judgment at Nuremburg (1961) Missed it, but I doubt it will matter.
Legal Eagles (1986) Missed it, or saw it and forgot it, but I doubt it will matter.
To Kill a Mockingbird (1962) Read it, managed to miss the movie.
The Paper Chase (1973) Ok, so the point is to break into the professor's office and view the profs answers to ace the test... this *may* actually help me in law school...
The Rainmaker (1997) Yeah, read it. Grisham again.
A Time to Kill (1996) Yeah, read it. Grisham again.
The Verdict (1982) Missed it, or saw it and forgot it, but I doubt it will matter.
Comic Relief Movies (right, because the others were so seriously helpful)
Legally Blonde (2001) Okay, now this is awesome. But would a 1L be allowed to prosecute? And would a case really turn on whether or not one should wash one's hair the day after a perm? Who cares, Reese Witherspoon is cute and funny!
Liar Liar (1997) John Carrey at his John Carrey-est "Loser...SLUT!"
My Cousin Vinny (1992) "The two yutes." "What the hell is a yute?" Classic.
EDIT: In response to OldLawGuy's comment (which has disappeared, sorry): Yes, this list is really copied from an an actual email recently sent by my law school. You think I spent time making all those links? Only someone being paid for that would bother...
