Prime time law: fictional television as legal narrative
Written by leading academicians from such diverse fields as law, history, English, political science, and mass communication, Prime Time Law examines the depiction of lawyers and legal issues in fictional television. Serious enough to be discussed in the classroom, entertaining enough to be read in the living room, and valuable enough to be kept in the library, Prime Time Law includes references to over 350 shows.
