Vote for your favorite DVD,

In what has become an annual event, it is time to let your voice be heard on how the library fine money is going to be spent this year.  For those new to Elon Law, or just don't know what I'm talking about, the library overdue fines are used to purchase two types of material for the libary:  Study Aids and law related DVDs.

To nominate a DVD for inclusion in the vote, write a comment which includes the title and an explantion of how the DVD is law related. Nominations will be open until October 15th.

After this, if we get enough qualified nominations, a survey will be distributed and all students will have an opportunity to vote for their top 5 picks. You may ask what is qualified?  Well the material is not quaified: if we already own the DVD, if it has no relationship to law, or it is not currenltly available.  As a reference point, stop by the DVD collection behind the Reference Desk to check out the titles we alreadyown.  At the end of the year, we will purchase the DVDs in order of preference until the fine money is exhausted.

Suits USA

I would like to see Dexter (seasons 4-6). It relates to criminal procedure in that it deals with collection of evidence and chain of custody. It also involves the District Attorney's office.

The Oliver Wendell Holmes biography "The Magnificent Yankee" (1950) — can't believe we don't have it already!

I'd like to nominate the classic "My Cousin Vinny" to be added to the law library if it's not already a part. It's a comedy about two "yoots" who're erroneously charged with murder in rural Alabama. The two hire one of their cousins, Vinny (Joe Pesci), an inexperienced tort attorney, to represent them.

This film involves many aspects of criminal law, evidence, and professional responsibility. Also Judge Exum made a reference to the film in Evidence Class.

I would like to see seasons 1 and 2 of "Suits". It is a show on USA about a top law firm in Manhattan.

I would request the entire season of the good wife. The two main characters are lawyers and it entirely based on their careers as lawyers (the wife works in Chicagos best firm and the husband is running for re-election of DA). Great show, and Ive actually used things Ive seen to contribute to class!

I also second Dexter and Scandal!
