The Greatest Fictional Lawyers

The August 2010 issue of ABA Journal has a wonderful feature on “The 25 Greatest Fictional Lawyers {Who Are Not Atticus Finch}.”

The Editors write of Atticus:

Finch was comfortable in his own skin and reasonably respectful of the frailties in others. To lawyers, he was the lawyer they wanted to be. To nonlawyers, he fostered the desire to become one.

So for this, and other reasons (See “Farewell, Atticus”), we’ve withdrawn Atticus Finch from this particular literary comparison, allowing our panel of experts to rank their favorite fictional lawyers without the heavy lifting required by a demigod.”

You can check out their selections here.

Note: The list makes a great “to rent” series for your rental movie queue!
