ABA Journal Cover Story on Why Hollywood Loves Lawyers

The ABA Journal has a feature article this month on Why Hollywood loves lawyers (as in "loves movies with lawyer characters as heroes", not as in loves studio lawyers to bail movie stars out of jail for DUI and drug offences). Check it out:
"Academy Award-winning actress and Harvard heartthrob Natalie Portman announces that she has signed on to do a biopic on the life of Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, and law lovers everywhere come to a halt—Bluebooks drop in mid cite-check, throats go dry at oral arguments, billable hours stop for a minute (actually, just a second), and court watchers turn off Judge Judy and long for selfies with the glamorous Portman dressed in a black robe."

"Football is America’s game, but movies are its favorite form of entertainment. And movies about the law are as essential to Hollywood history as cowboy Westerns or romantic comedies. Heroism that acquits the falsely accused will hold its own against any nonstop action flick."
