Whether you’re looking to de-stress over a weekend or binge watch something over a vacation, the Law Library’s Leisure Section has what you need. With exams looming in the not too distant future you may need a break from the constant studying and outlining.  You are studying and outlining already, right?

Either way, the Library has a fun leisure section stocked full of TV shows and movies for your viewing pleasure:

TV Shows:

Criminal Minds – Because all investigations should be solved in 40 minutes.

Matlock – Who doesn’t love this Southern do-gooder? Sure, it’s a little dated but think of it like a time capsule to the land of shoulder pads and wide-leg suit pants.

Perry Mason – For the lover of black-and-white-era television you can’t go wrong with this legal drama. Besides, Mr. Mason somehow manage to get only innocent clients making this show a statistical anomaly worth watching.

The Closer – A Southern chocoholic who breaks bad guys with her logic and reasoning? Why not!

West Wing – Because maybe a fictional President is what we need right now.

 

And for the more serious among us there are even Documentaries:

Hot Coffee – Which challenges what you think you know about tort reform.

How to Die in Oregon – An in-depth look into the controversies surrounding medical aid in dying.

 

Light-hearted Movies:

My Cousin Vinny – Regarded by some as the best legal movie of all time, My Cousin Vinny details one lawyer’s difficulty in navigating down-home justice.

Legally Blonde – When you want to believe law school can be as easy as Reese Witherspoon makes it look.

1776 – Before there was Hamilton the Musical there was 1776. Yes, it’s a musical and yes it’s cheesy but if you are in the mood for musical theater you can’t go wrong with this choice.

The Rain Maker – Because who doesn’t love to see a lawyer go after a big, bad insurance company?

These are just some of the many titles available at the Law Library.

Let’s face it, law in real-life involves some dull mechanics (I’m talking about you, Civil Procedure). If you need an escape, look no further than the Law Library’s Leisure Section.
