The Verdict. The perfect movie for those of you looking for Redemption. Or, David versus Goliath. And, another good teaching moment in Evidence – this time, about the admissibility of a Writing. With Paul Newman, James Mason, Charlotte Rampling, Jack Warden. 

Seabiscuit. Not a lawyer to be found anywhere in this one – but a must-see for those of you wondering if “persistence” and teaching methods pay off in the pursuit of Life’s Great Goals. Honoring the process of getting up the mountain, in its own way, can be as important as standing on top.

The Devil’s Advocate. Al Pacino’s Satan versus lawyer Keanu Reeve’s Conflicted Good Guy will be a good review before you take the MPRE. The subject of Professional Responsibility is much-tested on the General Bar Exam – and I think you’ll identify many of the same issues in this one.

Inherit the Wind. Spencer Tracy, Frederic March, Gene Kelly – who’s not to like – as you spend most of your time in another Depression era Southern courtroom. This time, fighting over the Establishment of Religion in the Then-Crime-of-the-Century “Scopes Monkey Trial.”

A Few Good Men. Tom Cruise and Jack Nicholson battle it out in a riveting scene of Cross Examination set in a military courtroom. With Kevin Bacon, the Able Prosecutor, getting an “Assist.”

The Man Who Shot Liberty Valance. Set in the Wild West Days of Judge Roy Bean, when becoming a lawyer didn’t mean you had to sit for an examination. Putting new meaning to the phrase: “Them was the good ‘ol days.” Another great performance from Jimmy Stewart – and with Lee Marvin and a gritty John Wayne.

Judgment at Nuremberg. It’s post World War II and the Nazi’s are brought to justice. A true account of the Death Camp evidence – with the Third Reich the eminent loser.

There are, of course, many other commendable movies, and if you have a favorite please forward it. Be sure to give it your own review. You can get it to us through: This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..

More Success For Ali

Cal Bar is pleased to announce that Ali Hinsche continued her remarkable run of success in having just passed the Florida bar exam.

This was her 4th (count 'em: 1, 2, 3, 4) successful bar - on her 1st attempt-following California, New York and Illinois.

While Ali worked with Cal Bar for each state, she also owes her success to persistence, hard work, and in learning how to adapt and apply the Cal Bar test-taking systems to the requirements of each bar exam.
