Up for nomination for the best impersonation of a real female lawyer, the candidates are Reese Witherspoon for her portrayal of Elle Woods in Legally Blonde … and Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg for her depiction of herself in On the Basis of Sex. Hollywood has gotten a lot right when it comes to stories about lawyers, and has missed the mark a time or two. This class will go over the best, and worst, when it comes to Hollywood’s depiction of the law. And in the process, we will review the Model Rules of Professional Responsibility.
