Grading the (TV) Lawyers

Tired of grading? Take a look at this discussion of "grading" TV lawyers, posted by Jayne Reardon for 2Civility at the Illinois Supreme Court Commision on Professionalism Website. Here's a link to the full infographic (click on each mini-page for the grade for each TV lawyer; unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be an overall guide to the list). Do you agree with the spread? Criteria seem somewhat undefined, but include "ethics," "professionalism," and attitudes toward work and justice.

 And how would you score folks like Patty Hewes (Damages), Sebastian Shark (Shark), Ben Matlock (Matlock), Perry Mason (Perry Mason), Harvey Birdman (Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law), Christine Sullivan (Night Court), Ken Preston (The Defenders), Bobby O'Donnell (The Practice), and Kevin Hill (Kevin Hill).

More about tv lawyers here in this article from the New Republic.
