Best Books For Aspiring Lawyers?

I’d have a hard time picking just one. There are many wonderful books that cover the various aspects of law, from its history to the ethics it requires, as well as those subjects I mentioned above: contracts and torts. But if I were forced to choose one, it would be The People v. OJ Simpson by Jeffrey Toobin because 1) It’s a great read; 2) In addition to being an excellent book about criminal trial procedure and procedures in general, the story behind this case is fascinating; 3) Its portrayal of lawyers was interesting—and surprising—in what they did for their clients (the defense team); 4) The “closure” chapter at the end was powerful and moving.

Do you know any good legal-themed movies? If so how do you think they compare? What makes them good or bad?
