Law in Popular Culture (LPOP) Collection
Need a break from studying? The Law in Popular Culture Collection (LPOP) is located on the 2nd floor of the Library, behind the Library stairwell.
Check out law-related television shows, feature films, documentaries, and mini-series. All the videos either include a lawyer as a central character or have law-related themes. Popular titles include The Wire and My Cousin Vinny. You can browse the collection in person or you can browse online. There's even a viewing area if you want to watch them in the Library. Videos can be checked out for 3 days and are especially popular on weekends. We make this collection available only to the law school community.
The LPOP Collection also includes works of fiction in all genres, as well as legal humor, plays, comics, and pulp magazines. The primary criteria for an item's inclusion is that it must either include a lawyer as a central character or have been authored by a lawyer. To help you decide what to check out, you can browse the fiction collection online. Books in the collection can be checked out for 3 weeks.
