4 Legal English Podcast | Episode 012
In this episode, we discuss the legal movie 12 Angry Men.
We will also discuss voir dire and the use of jury consultants. This movie has some great scenes about the jury selection process in court (known as voir dire). The attorneys for both the plaintiff and defense have jury consultants advising them during this process.
The Jurors are (by order of their juror number): Martin Balsam, John Fiedler, Lee J. Cobb, E. G. Marshall, Jack Klugman, Edward Binns, Jack Warden, Henry Fonda, Joseph Sweeney, Ed Begley, George Voskovec, and Robert Webber.

4 Legal English: Best Legal Movies
This movie discussion is the second in a series. (See our earlier episode on Runaway Jury.) We review movies with a legal theme and discuss what we can learn from them. We will point out what is realistic and unrealistic, and use the movie as a starting point to examine some aspect of the law or the legal system. Of course we will also consider if the film is entertaining, humorous, and enjoyable.
