Lady Justice Goes To The Movies (Lloyd Stires, Diane Berman)

ID : 3087   
« back to classes page

The courtroom drama has been a staple of American cinema for decades and has resulted in many excellent films. However, filmmakers have also been known to take liberties with law and procedure in order to enhance the drama of courtroom scenes. We will watch and discuss six films from the 1950s and 1960s that raise both social and legal questions, and that illustrate trial tactics still being used today. Two study leaders with different professional backgrounds—social psychology and the law—will lead a discussion of issues and themes presented by each film. Please note that this is a film discussion class. It is hoped that, after the movie is shown, you will be able to remain for the duration of the class.
