Coming Soon: Law School, the Documentary
First, there was Bar Exam: The Documentary, and now comes Law School: The Documentary. On the heels of the release earlier this year of the film, A Lawyer Walks into a Bar ..., a film that followed six aspiring lawyers as they took the California bar exam, another filmmaker is set to release The Trials of Law School, which follows eight students through their first year in law school at the University of Oklahoma. Here is how filmmaker Zone Productions describes it:
"The Trials of Law School captures the stress and emotion both inside the classroom and out. The students try to juggle family and relationships with a new curriculum, a new language and a new way of life. Their journey is contrasted with insight from over 25 acclaimed law professors and legal scholars from around the country."
Law faculty featured in the film include: Taunya Lovell Banks of Maryland, Randy E. Barnett of Georgetown, David Becker of Washington University in St. Louis, Angela Davis of American, Charles Edward Daye of North Carolina, Richard D. Freer of Emory, Elizabeth Garrett of USC, John C.P. Goldberg of Vanderbilt, John Kidwell of Wisconsin, Paula Lustbader of Seattle, Ruth McKinney of UNC, Judith A. McMorrow of Boston College, Martha Peters of Elon, Eric Posner of Chicago, Richard Primus of Michigan, former St. Thomas dean and now U.S. District Judge Patrick J. Schiltz, Christopher Slobogin of Florida, David S. Sokolow of Texas, Mark Tushnet of Harvard and Elizabeth Warren of Harvard.
The film was written, produced and directed by Oklahoma attorney Porter Heath Morgan, a 2004 graduate of the University of Oklahoma College of Law. It will premiere this Sunday at the Dallas Video Festival. Meanwhile, the trailer can be seen on YouTube.
