My professor told me to watch this to get a feeling of the law school environment. I think it's pretty sad how some students stymie other students from learning by hiding textbooks. Oh well . . . it's a jungle out there and I'm ready.


Anyway, has anyone seen this movie? My friends say it's pretty depressing.

it's been a long time, but I remeber it as being pretty good.  of course that was long before I ever thought about law school. 

my wife just finished Trial and Error and she recommends it to future lawyers.

I saw it for the first time a couple of weeks ago. Pretty funny.

And hiding books is pretty crappy, but I had a friend who told me that at music school the competitive ones would sometimes put razor blades between the keys of pianos to keep others from practicing while their fingers healed...

Paperchase is a quality movie, and I don't think you'll find it too depressing. 

I do hope that professors aren't still asking me my name at the end of my first semester!

P.S. Lindsay Wagner is indeed oh so hot in film.
