Student Productions


Left Column
FILM AND LAW PRODUCTIONS presents the representative small-scale productions of law students enrolled in upper division seminars. Enabling law students to make their own films and video presentations creates space for them to question issues of social context, moral footing and restorative justice that might otherwise be lost in law’s traditional pedagogy. Filmmaking may even alter their vision of law and restore what outsider law students may have lost in their silences.

Kate Nace Day and Russell Murphy have written traditional law review articles on their pedagogical experiments as the origins and development of FILM AND LAW PRODUCTIONS, in light of The Carnegie Foundation Report, Educating Lawyers and the empirical research of Elizabeth Mertz, The Language of Law School: Learning to 'Think Like A Lawyer'.
