5 Binge-Worthy Fall Shows for Lawyers and Law Students

When it comes to television programming for lawyers and law students, not every show about lawyers and the justice system are going to hit the mark. After all, entertainment is rather subjective.

But, if you crave "who-done-its" or law-related dramas/comedies, below you can find a list of five binge-worthy series to jam into your nights and weekends.

Better Call Saul (AMC)

The newest season of Better Call Saul is doing what it does best, making every lawyer out there thankful they are not Jimmy McGill. If you take pleasure in seeing lawyers face ethical dilemmas and do the wrong/"right" thing, this show explores the depths of just what that means in a brilliantly dark, yet sometimes comedic way.

American Vandal (Netflix)

If you liked the first season, but felt that it could have been sillier and maybe grosser, then season 2 of American Vandal is definitely for you. This year, instead of tackling the mystery of who vandalized all the cars in the school's faculty lot, it asks who spiked the lemonade with a diarrhea inducing substance causing a school wide pants-crapping. Low-brow? Yes. Hilarious? Also yes.

Bull (CBS)

Currently on its third season, it's easy to see how Bull could have flown under your radar (though there have been a few shows before it with the same name). But the newest iteration of Bull presents a rather extreme jury consultant taking on high-profile clients who need help "reading" the jury. Naturally, the show goes quite a bit further, and if you can make it through the full trailer and have a real penchant for bad court dramas, you'll probably really enjoy the show.

The Good Cop (Netflix)

Shows about cops aren't all created equal, especially when the creator of Monk is involved. You've wanted more of that quirkiness, and well, that's what The Good Cop seems to be all about. Also, it's got Tony Danza in it, so there's that.

Law and Order

If you really need a legal drama series to go deep on, Law and Order has you covered with 20+ seasons, and a storyline that just keeps developing.

Bonus: The Kevin Spacey-free version of House of Cards is set to start back up again November 2.
