Former prosecutor comments on courtroom scenes from TV and the movies

I recently found this video in which a former prosecutor comments on courtroom scenes from TV shows and movies. She comments on a lot of different aspects of litigation, from substantive issues, rules of evidence, conduct of lawyers in the courtroom and the role of the judge.  The clip is a bit long, but I enjoyed watching it.  You can watch it below or by going here.  She discusses clips from, among others, A Few Good Men, Legally Blonde, To Kill a Mockingbird, Philadelphia, A Civil Action, Class Action, Roman Israel, esq, and from TV shows like Suits, The Good Wife, and The Practice.

There are, of course, a lot of other scenes from movies that could have been included, but there is only so much time...  One I recommend you take a look is the scene of the plaintiff's deposition in the movie Class Action.
