Real Law Review:
I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous.
Today I'm taking a break from representing clients and teaching law students how to kick ass in law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth.
This is part of a continuing series of "Lawyer Reaction" videos. Got a legal movie or TV show you'd like me to critique? Let me know in the comments!
All clips used for fair use commentary, criticism, and educational purposes. See Hosseinzadeh v. Klein, 276 F.Supp.3d 34 (S.D.N.Y. 2017); Equals Three, LLC v. Jukin Media, Inc., 139 F. Supp. 3d 1094 (C.D. Cal. 2015).

  • I had a court dispute where I arrived with a lawyer representing an established firm. The opposition arrived with his buddy who had watched a lot of procedural television. If you’ve never seen a judge progressively lose the battle against giving a “honestly, what the f*** is happening” expression, it is hilarious.

  • Objection! The autopsy could have begun with the guy's brain in a jar on his desk if something particularly traumatic happened to cause his death, leading to some or perhaps most of his brain matter being out of his body. It would then have been collected as evidence. Now, the doctor in this case would need to have been more specific, perhaps, but he was clearly frustrated and may have used a touch of hyperbole to make his point.

  • I have an objection: the brain could've been removed by the murderer or during an accident, thus preserved in a jar and present on the table prior to the autopsy. This would also justify the questioning line, if the lawyer had been trying to argue that the victim was not dead until the autopsy.

  • I can’t agree with you about not doing legal research. I literally had a case where I told the attorney what the issue was and did research and read the documents and knew that the other side had not done EITHER and the lawyer I got to back me up because I am NOT an attorney. He said he knew what the issue was and the opposition and knew he could win. He managed to mess up by getting his fee but ultimately got nothing for me. At the end after I had to sign the papers (time limitations were a thing here but the lawyer did NOT know that) he then said “I did not understand really”. Then I told him again and told him why they where DOA and what generally the law and the contract meant it was like a light bulb 💡 was over his head and he said “ooohhh”. So yeah do your own back ground checking of the law, the documents you have and MOST importantly makes sure the lawyer has a clue.

  • Okay, but the autopsy thing, I mean... wouldn't it depend on the condition of the body at the start of the autopsy? Typical autopsy procedure likely doesn't apply if the person had their brain spilling out of their head already. Autopsy are standard procedure even if the method of death appears obvious. And I thought every attorney heard about the one that shot himself in court. It was taught in my law school and it's one of the deaths featured in Horrible Histories.

  • about the autopsy joke: I'm pretty sure the point was that the brain was already in a jar before the autopsy began, maybe the death was caused by an accident or a murder. Otherwise the joke doesn't even work regardless of how an autopsy goes in real life

  • after watching this again I just realized. at the 12 meme whit the brain jar. 6:23 - 8:15 its odd that the autopsy person putting the brain in the jar before the autopsy but wouldn't him putting the brain in a jar qualify as autopsy? my theory is that the person that put the brain in the jar is not the person in court? but murderer maybe as a trophy(yee could also be almost anyone else). so what the autopsy person got rolling into his work desk that day was a body whit the head/brain in a jar.

  • First of all, yes I agree that most people shouldn't do their own legal research. However, It's actually a far stretch to compare diagnosing cancer to probably basic legal advise that is available to the public. I have represented myself in court against a lawyer in a civil case, and was ruled in my favor. I'm not trying to down play the importance of appropriate legal counsel, however its far from diagnosing cancer, and can be a viable option for people who cant afford ridiculous lawyer costs.

I knew maybe like 3 people who actually felt like they deserved to be there. I was not one of those three.

      The NoGoatThe NoGoat2 päivää sitten
  • Regarding the brain in the jar on the doctor's desk: If this anecdote were true, it should make tracking down the case easier. There are a limited number of cases in which decapitation and jarring would happen before the autopsy - all of which suggest a bizarre and singular case. Perhaps the killer decapitated the victim and presented the brain in a jar with a neat ribbon and a note to wish the police well in their pursuit. Perhaps a case where the brain was discovered significantly before the body. Surely these would be easy cases to track down; if nothing else you'd imagine the true crime community would already have several podcasts on the subject. All that aside, the joke falls flat by going for a cliche lawyer joke. If the lawyer had simply responded "Nothing further, your honour" to the news of the brain's location, it would have been much punchier.

  • I'm a software engineer and I had to learn about Open Source Software licenses and contracts; sat through a 4 hour class by another software engineer turned real-life lawyer explaining it all to us (and all the open issues) so I used to joke that I got my 4 hour law degree. I actually had to review all proposed free/open source software use for the company, which I could easily do when nothing unusual presented itself, but I had one of the corporate lawyers on speed dial for all the rest. Engineers would suggest the most questionable means of getting around license clauses, thinking that it would all be above board. ("Can't I just copy and paste the code and leave out the copyright and license info? Doesn't that protect us?") Yeesh. It was bad enough that I had to make such decisions based on that 4 hour lecture (which was recorded, and I watched many many times), but I had to explain it all to the engineers who attended Google University for their law degrees. :-(

Once they're stiff he washes his hands of them. so why is he providing speculative evidence on the workings of something he doesn't even do? Why don't you call up Caitlin Doughty instead? ... oh yeah... legal feild... boys club.... sexism... misogyny... right. Guess even you. ugh. boring.

  • 8:09 Not all autopsies are performed with the torso first. The ones I've attended all start with the initial external examination, then the brain is removed and weighed. Then as the torso is opened, the assistant sews up the first incision, usually trying to hide it in the hairline. Then once the various organs are removed, inspected and weighed, the brain is placed in the abdominal cavity along with all the other organs.
