Legal Facts and Fun For the Legal Professional
1. When did the first law firms with two or more lawyers form in the United States?
The first law firms with two or more lawyers appeared in the United States just prior to the American Civil War (1861)
2. Where are the largest law firms in the world located?
The largest law firms in the world are based primarily in the United Kingdom and the United States. The American system of licensing attorneys on a state-by-state basis, the tradition of having a headquarters in a single U.S. state and a close focus on profits per partner (as opposed to sheer scale) has to date limited the size of most American law firms. Thus, whilst the most profitable law firms in the world remain in New York, four of the six largest firms in the world are based in London in the United Kingdom. But the huge size of the United States results in a larger number of large firms overall. A survey found that the United States alone had 901 law firms with more than 50 lawyers, while there were only 58 such firms in Canada, 44 in Great Britain, 14 in France, and 9 in Germany. There is an increasing tendency towards globalisation of law firms.
3. Which Movies are a must for legal professionals to see and enjoy personally and professionally.
Anatomy of a Murder (1959). This movie, based on the fact based novel of the same name by "Robert Traver" (pseudonym of Michigan Supreme Court Justice John Jackson) combines wonderfully written and acted scenes of legal ethics, trial strategy, and courtroom drama with serious questions about the nature of justice and the purpose of the adversarial legal system. Jimmy Stewart is superb as the inventive defense attorney Paul Biegler.
Inherit the Wind (1960), which is based on a real case, Tennessee v. Scopes, and dramatizes the fight over the teaching of evolution in United States public schools. Old pros Spencer Tracy and Frederic March make magic of every word, showing us what good acting is all about.
Judgment at Nuremberg (1961), is the best film ever made about judges and judging. Based on a script by Abby Mann, it uses as raw material the trials of Third Reich judges in 1947 and 1948. Spencer Tracy is Judge Dan Haywood, the thoughtful American faced with condemning men with whom he senses he has a great deal in common. Richard Widmark is the eager and tactless military prosecutor, Maximilian Schell, who won an Academy Award for his portrayal, is the committed advocate Hans Rolfe who attempts to mount a defense for a client (Burt Lancaster) who does not want to defend himself.
