Law On the Stage

The ABA Journal has posted its August 2012 Law In Popular Culture feature: this year it focuses on the theater's top twelve courtroom dramas. The jury's picks are The Merchant of Venice, Twelve Angry Men, Inherit the Wind, Judgment at Nuremberg, Witness for the Prosecution, The Caine Mutiny Court-Martial, A Man For All Seasons (which the feature has listed as The Man For All Seasons), Anatomy of a Murder, A Few Good Men, Chicago, Oedipus the King, and The Man in the Glass Booth.

I like all these choices, although I might have chosen some others in place of one or two of these, for example. What about The Andersonville Trial?

Which are your favorite courtroom plays?
