MY TWO FAVOURITE LEGAL MOVIES

I will soon start my postdoc at Leiden Law School in the Netherlands. I will be working on the inter-university project 'Institutions for Conflict Resolution'. I have been asked to write an introductory note, and decided to share my two favourite legal dramas with my new colleagues.

12 Angry Men (1957) by Sidney Lumet

96 minutes in one room, but so many lessons for real life. A plea for nuance and subtlety.




Down by Law (1986) by Jim Jarmusch

This one is - in fact - also one of my all-time favourite movies... I bet it will be one of yours too after watching this teaser.
