It is said that life imitates art, and sometimes that art inspires people in what they want to do with their lives. A song could inspire you to become a musician or a singer. A painting could inspire you to start painting or drawing. A TV show could inspire you to become a doctor or lawyer.
Entertainment and art does inspire people to do many things, from creating their own to becoming trained in something they saw their favorite actor do in their latest television show. If you have a passion for legal dramas, you may find yourself inspired to become a lawyer, or maybe a judge. Here are a few legal dramas that are sure to make you think about going to college and hitting the books.
Law & Order
Whether you want to help people who have been hurt by their loved ones, raped, or you want to help the families of people that have been murdered, Law & Order has a show for you. In fact, there are seven incarnations of the Law & Order franchise.
In case you haven’t been keeping up since the first Law & Order aired way back in 1990, its popularity has bred many spin offs with great actors, like Ice-T. Spin offs include Law & Order: Special Victims Unit, Law & Order: Criminal Intent, Law & Order: Trial by Jury, Law & Order: LA, Law & Order: True Crime, and Law & Order: You the Jury. They mostly pull their cases straight from the headline, and you get a chance to see what happens behind the scenes when a crime is committed.
The Good Wife
The Good Wife is an extremely popular television show right now, maybe because of the acting or simply because of the storyline. Julianna Margulies plays the good wife of a former state attorney that finds himself in prison after a sex and corruption scandal. She has to go back to work to provide for her family, and works as a litigator for a law firm.
One of the reasons this show is so popular is that it spends a good deal of time in the courtroom with the main characters. You get to see what it is like to work in a law firm, and maybe find that it looks like something you’d enjoy. The other reason it’s popular is because people love the actors, and they keep the stories fresh and interesting.
If you’ve been considering getting into law, take some time to binge watch some great legal dramas like these, or even look up some of the popular legal based movies. There are plenty of them. You’ll get a chance to get an idea what that world is like, and determine if it’s really what you want to do!
