This is a chapter from this book, Law & Popular Culture: Text, Notes, & Questions, by David Ray Papke, Christine Alice Corcos, Melissa Cole Essig, Peter H. Huang, Lenora P. Ledwon, Diane H. Mazur, Carrie Menkel-Meadow, Philip N. Meyer, & Binny Miller (2007). This book is a classroom text which analyzes American law-related popular culture. This chapter starts with a list of these five movies related to business law: Boiler Room (2000), Enron - The Smartest Guys in the Room (2005), Other People's Money (1991), The Corporation (2003), and Wall Street (1987). This chapter discusses a number of topical subjects and contains various notes and questions, in addition to excerpts from articles by leading law (and popular culture) scholars. The remaining chapters of the book focus on popular cultural depictions of these legal actors and institutions: law students, lawyers, clients, witnesses, judges, and juries; these first-year law school curriculum areas: Constitutional law, criminal law, and torts; as well as these upper-level law school electives: family law, international law, and military law.
