Tell Us Who Your Favorite Television Lawyer Is for the Chance to Win a $1,000 Scholarship!

Lawyer characters in movies and TV shows are inspirational, hard-working, and incredibly skilled in the courtroom. Legal fiction gives the average person an idea of what it is like to work in a big law firm, represent murderers and embezzlers in court, and overall how rewarding the life of a lawyer can be.

Hopefully, if you’re interested in pursuing a legal career, you know that TV personas often skim over some of the less exciting aspects of being a lawyer. Lawyers spend countless hours researching the law and preparing for that glamorous trial moment. And in reality, lawyers don’t win every case.

However, that doesn’t mean that legal fiction doesn’t have some truth to it, and if a certain legal character is inspiring you to attend law school, hold onto that inspiration. In fact, we are interested in hearing about the fictional lawyers that inspire you. For our 2023 law student scholarship contest, we are asking aspiring lawyers to answer the following question in a short video essay:

Who is your favorite fictional TV lawyer and why?
