Cantebury's Law

Well, now I know all the things I did wrong back when I was a defense attorney. I didn't play spy / counter-spy with the prosecutor's office. I didn't didn't coach my client to lie on the stand. I didn't hire private investigators to spy on jurors while the trial is ongoing.

Yeesh.

I missed the show, kinda expected it would play into the current protrayal of some criminal defense attorneys who'll do anything, and I mean anything, to win. Lawyers like that give the profession a bad name.

"a rebellious female defense attorney who's willing to bend the law in order to protect the wrongfully accused"

Sounds like House for defense attorneys. (Which, frankly, maybe I should watch...)

How about a show about a defense attorney who's willing to obey the law to protect the probably guilty? Why couldn't that be fascinating enough?

I imagine criminal lawyers feel the same way about TV shows about criminal defense as I do about TV shows about computer geeks...
