So I was watching Ally McBeal today, the episode with the revelation that Ling actually went to law school and was editor of the Cornell Law Review. So I started thinking about the characters for which we actually know the school:
Ally, Richard - Harvard
Billy, Georgia - Michigan
Ling - Cornell
Quite frankly, I find it hard to believe that either Ally or Richard could get into Harvard. But hey, it's imaginary.
(And even though he's not fictional, we all know that David E. Kelly went to BU!)
Any other TV show / movies / book characters you can list that went to specific law schools? I don't know any of those from Boston Legal or The Practice or Law and Order, etc. But there are of course the tons of movie characters that went to Harvard Law: the guy from The Firm, the guy from The Paper Chase, the girl from Legally Blonde... (Speaking of which, the woman who wrote the book that Legally Blonde is based on went to Stanford. Apparently the book is really horrible, though. She wrote it instead of actually studying, and then dropped out.)
