Due to staffing changes in the Michael J. Malone Douglas County Law Library, the Reels of Justice Film Series has ended.
The Michael J. Malone Douglas County Law Library sponsored 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 featured films that were selected for their overall quality and for their portrayal of the legal system. Most of the films in the series were classics and featured major motion picture stars of the past and present. Films were screened four times per year, in February, May, August, and November.
In addition to the screening of a film, each program included commentary on the main theme of the film and the accuracy of the film in portraying the legal system. Whenever possible, the commentary was provided by a local attorney familiar with the film who also took questions from the audience.
This free film series was co-sponsored by the Lawrence Public Library and presented in the Lawrence Public Library Auditorium.
Films Exhibited in the Series:
Inherit the Wind - August 2006
