Do you want to know how our legal system works? You’ve come to the right place. LegalEagle is all about giving you an insider’s view to the legal system. Have some fun and learn to think like a lawyer.

I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous. So I created this channel to answer your burning questions about the law and the legal profession. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth. Learn everything you always wanted to know about being an attorney!

If you’re a law student or thinking about law school, check out my other channel made specifically for law students and 0Ls here:

    So if Allah is just the Arabic translation of the English word God, why did the student have to put a foreign word in the pledge? She could just have used English, but perhaps she wanted to get a rise out of folks who value English and our county's pledge as it was meant to be said, per Congressional legislation in 1952. Is she a troubleaker?

    In my book, she was brave putting herself in danger just to get justice. We need more people like her; the fact she is the face of justice will only embolden the police to check themselves. I have been on many ride-along years, and I can tell you that there are many good cops. Police should turn in their own and save face before another building is burned down by right-wing extremists who blame African Americans every time.

    At 20:00 he says police can extend/investigate because you remained silent. Supreem Court has ruled otherwise. 5th amendment gives you the presumption of innocence to the point that it CANNOT be used as suspicious activity or probable cause and the police must end the stop within a "reasonable" time to write the ticket and leave if there is no other reason to extend it.

    I'm actually surprised they didn't confiscate her phone when they saw her taking pictures. Woudn't have been too unusual for the police to try to suppress evidence..

  • bookfound

    Maybe the civilians should be wearing bodycams, to help keep an eye on police activity.

  • Andewy

    Or this could be a way to trick people into falsely confessing if they believe they are writing down all the possible crimes they think they would be charged of in relation to o e event? Let's boil it down to a simple traffic infraction... say you ran a stop sign... if you were told you would be pardoned of this if you wrote down everything you believe you did involving this one thing... you could put down numerous things down. Failure to maintain control, failure to yield, improper use of brakes, failure to stop, failure to obey traffic signs, etc. This might be what happened and why you should always hire a lawyer. I don't really have an opinion because I just don't know who or what happened.

    I think they mean almost always they are offered a plea deal first (to take the death penalty[hereby called D.P] off the table)... and since they choose to reject the plea deal and risk the D.P,they "chose it". Or they are just crazy.

    Cover the episode where Huell get's arrested for assaulting a police officer (who was out of uniform). Would that really happen?

    • Bay Angelo
      Bay Angelo

      Should that have been a crime? No. We both know that assaulting a police officer is a crime _because_ of them being a police officer. If you don’t know that they are there’s no point to the intent (mens rea) behind the crime. Would it happen that a police officer shrieks the crime is assault of a police officer just to get the defendant in more trouble? ABSOLUTELY, and it’s happened uncountable times before, often with not-good results for the defendant. Honestly I think it has to be considered a form of entrapment before. At this rate a police officer in plainclothes could intentionally provoke someone (including by instigating the fight/throwing the first punch) and then get them for “assaulting a police officer”. It’s been done that way before too. How is it not entrapment every time?!

    If an Ohioan civilian reads the ORC cover to cover, does that give that civilian a legal advantage? You always hear "ignorance is no excuse" when no one ever reads the code unless they work in law or law enforcement, so would a civilian who took the time to read it have an advantage?

    This is completely random but I was having a heated debate with my partner about the legal implications of that Fox TV show "I want to marry Harry". Where does the situation of impersonating someone and lying to "contestants" about their identity lie in the legal/illegal space?


    No, it wouldn't have affected my life. Banning Twitter would also be a great step forward as it's unbelievably toxic and biased. It's also not a human right as they claim. My life got so much better from just throwing my TV away 20 years ago and has saved me $30k which is invested in land.

    Gotham's situation is meant to examine the fragility of rule of law, and how corruption jeopardizes the fabric of government itself. The police understand that if they don't arrest people for things, they might as well be legal, and they mostly seem to work this way, playing very loosely with the rules and laws. Gordon is the only one who does it with ultimately good intentions. Crime is so deeply embedded in Gotham that no legal retribution will ever stop it, because the legal system itself is corrupt. Reducing the problem to simpler parts and kicking the crap out of it is, therefore, necessary.
