Next Film:

The Lawrence Public Library is currently undergoing an 18 million dollar renovation. As a result, the Auditorium will be unavailable for use. This will require the Film Series to go on hiatus until the project is completed, which will likely be sometime in 2014. The Film Series will begin again from where it left off.

The Douglas County Law Library is sponsoring the Reels of Justice Film Series as a public service in its education and outreach program to promote a better understanding of the legal system in the community at large. The series will feature films that have been selected for their overall quality and for their portrayal of the legal system. Most of the films in the series are classics and feature major motion picture stars of the past and present. Films are screened four times per year, in February, May, August, and November.

In addition to the screening of a film, each program will include commentary on the main theme of the film and the accuracy of the film in portraying the legal system. Whenever possible, the commentary will be provided by a local attorney familiar with the film who will also take questions from the audience.

This free film series is co-sponsored by the Lawrence Public Library and is presented in the Lawrence Public Library Auditorium.

Some Other Films in the Series:

The Rainmaker


Snow Falling on Cedars
