I Am the Law

Turner Classic Movies is airing the 1938 classic, I Am the Law, today. It is one of the first films to feature a law professor as a protagonist. Edward G. Robinson plays law professor John Lindsay, a man who is bored enough with being on sabbatical that he agrees to take on the mob. The full synopsis is available here. Clearly, legal education had fewer demands 71 years ago.
