While not a law movie, per se, I highly recommend anyone going into law school see "Thank You for Smoking."

12 Angry Men

That's a good play/movie.  I also like lawyeresque movies like Amazing Grace (story of William Wilberforce) and Amistad (which I haven't yet finished, but will.)

maybe I'm weird but I get SO excited for law school every time I watch Paper Chase.  The first time I sat in on a law class all I could think of was the scene where Hart is watching Kingsfield and says "we are going to have to get up so early to keep up with him."

A Time to Kill is my favorite, hands down. 

I like A Civil Action too.
