ABA’s Greatest Legal Movies of All Time

This month, the American Bar Association Journal published a list of its top 25 Greatest Legal Movies, a diverse mix of comedy, drama, and cinematic masterpieces. Picks include some good laughs from My Cousin Vinny and Chicago, as well as some predictable choices like A Few Good Men and Erin Brokovich. Surprise winners included Amistad and Miracle on 34th Street, at number 25. And of course, at Number 1, was the touching legal classic, To Kill a Mockingbird.

The ABA Journal’s panel of judges included 12 lawyers and law professors who specialize in film and entertainment. Also worth taking a look at is the ABA’s article, “How I Learned to Litigate at the Movies.”
