Beth | 3 comments Hi!

I am about to start a class at law school , the class involves how the media and society have a certain perspective of lawyers.

I am looking for any recommendations (preferably fiction) which play up the lawyer stereotype ( that they are liars , like to win etc).

Sorry for the spam !

Thanks X

Kate Dane | 20 comments You might try the Andy Carpenter series. He's a bit wacky, but an animal lover as well as a lawyer, and the books are fun.
Grisham's lawyer books will give you a look at the darker side of law, of course.

I think the Jim Carrey movie, "Liar Liar" would be a great example.

Lynn Lovegreen (lynn_lovegreen) The Paper Chase was a movie in the 70s, but I think it was based on a book.
