Courtroom scenes in movies are a dime a dozen but only a few of them manage to enchant us and to make their way into all the tops of the genre. Old or new, modern or classic, with daring subjects or just plain old divorce cases, the movies that feature great courtroom scenes have a bigger chance to conquer the public. Dramatics, Your Honor!
