Suits, Law and Order UK, The Briefs

It’s hard to imagine what it would be like to have a professional career as a lawyer or what it is like to work in a legal environment. However, the subject of law within TV shows has seen a huge boost over the past two years with a number of huge TV networks launching shows based around the legal profession.

So, what better way to get a taste of the legal profession than from your living room couch? Today I have compiled the top 3 shows currently airing all about being a lawyer. Enjoy.

The Briefs

If you’re looking for a realistic look at the legal lifestyle then you will love The Briefs. The documentary show follows a well know English law firm as they go by their daily work. Ranging from criminal damage cases to a simple call to the court. The show gives a realistic and non-edited look at the life of a criminal defence lawyer. Originally aired on BBC and continuing repeats being shown The Briefs is a real look at the UK legal system and men and women behind it.

Suits

Suits has been a huge hit in America and its cult like following is spreading across the Atlantic with the show now being hugely successful here in the UK. The drama and comedy show follows a fictional law firm based in New York as a new guy works his way up in the industry without ease. The show ranges from jealous colleagues to general life issues but has a comedic feel along the way.

Law & Order UK

Originally a U.S TV show Law and Order soon made its way to British TV and is now on its seventh series. The dramatic show gives the views of the two sides of the legal sector, the Police who catch the criminal and the lawyers who try to prove them innocent.  The show follows through each investigation from the forensics to the final court case and has a truly captivating story along the way.

So, if you’re preparing to begin law school this September then these three shows may be worth watching. If you have any suggestions of your own then why not send us a tweet.
