Court Room Drama Films

Film flames, episode episodes. Post lifetime is 1 year.

Have watched a few recently and looking for more in this genre, can anyone recommend what they believe are not to miss court room drama film or favorites? Contemporary is OK but I like the classics so the best contemporaries or pre 80s or 70s would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

May not be what you're looking for since it was made in 2003 but Runaway Jury is great.

That was pretty good but it is actually my favorite Grisham novel so didn't live up to that. In op should have said a couple of my favorites are Anatomy of a Murder, To Kill a Mockingbird, and 12 Angry Men, and Inherit the Wind.

And justice for all with al Pacino

Agree with the above. Also...
Judgment at Nuremberg
Young Mr. Lincoln
Paths of Glory (not exactly a courtroom drama, but great trial scenes)

Presumed Innocent with Harrison Ford is a good one.

Lies are a funny thing. They slip through your fingertips because they never happened to you. Time wounds all the heals as we fade out of view
