Editorial Reviews


''This book provides resources that lawyers interested in developing professional skills or professors teaching skills and ethics courses could draw on. It appeals to classic film buffs and is particularly appropriate for any law school library that maintains a film collection. It could easily form the basis for a film series organized by a law school or legal education entity. While there are other books that talk about the appearance of legal topics and lawyers in movies, this appears to be a unique addition to the literature. ...A quick and enjoyable read, this book is recommended for collections focusing on practical lawyering skills and for professionals interested in approaching skills from a new perspective.'' --Kate Irwin-Smiler, AALL Spectrum Blog

''She whittled down the movies she watched to 26 that illustrate important skills for lawyers, though the skills are personal and professional characteristics that apply to everyone -- balance, compassion, dependability, judgment, loyalty, sincerity, tact and willpower. The result is her A-to-Z book...[a]imed primarily at students and new lawyers, [it] also may appeal to screen aficionados. ...Few of us would plow through hundreds of films, but reading Anders' well-written essays on legal skills and her synopses of her final 26 made me want to rent them and, in many cases, see what I've missed.'' --Michael Kelly, Omaha World-Herald columnist

''While the book is tailored mainly for law students, it will appeal to lawyers as well. Bar associations might base a film discussion series on it. It would also make a welcome gift for law graduates or lawyers, who can enjoy reading the book from cover to cover or simply mining it for forgotten gems.'' --Judith D. Fischer, Bench & Bar (September 2012)
