Annalise Keating is an unorthodox law professor. Instead of being a “good” law professor or actually “teaching” she makes her students unpaid interns for her criminal defense law firm. Drama! Mystery! Legal technicalities! Today we’re going to review How to Get Away With Murder. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade!

This one was a bear. It made me want to pull my hair out. This show is more soap opera than legal procedural. I’m glad I got through it, but I’m not sure I’m the same man as when i started. Does it get better over time? Would you like me to react to another one? Let me know in the comments!

Custom Suits: legaleagle.link/indochino
Ties: fave.co/2ImLY9I
Tie Clips/Bars: amzn.to/2WIQ6EE
Pocket Squares: amzn.to/2UfsKtL

▶ Why Indochino Suits? (50% off Premium Suits + free shipping) [ legaleagle.link/indochino ]: Off-the-rack suits NEVER fit right. Indochino makes fully custom suits that fit perfectly using any material I want, with all of the options I want. And they cost 1/3rd of what normal suits costs. I’ve purchased them with my own money for years, so I’m thrilled they are now a sponsor.

▶ Why Ties from TheTieBar? (Free shipping on orders over $50) [ fave.co/2ImLY9I ]: Normal ties are too fat. Skinny ties are too skinny. So these days I only wear ties that are exactly 2.5” wide. They are fashionable without being hipster. You see them in all of my videos. TieBar ties are perfect, come in every color I want, and never cost more than $19.

▶ Why these Tie Clips? [ amzn.to/2WIQ6EE ]: It’s really hard to find affordable tie clips that are the right size (1.5”), look good, and are great quality. These tie bars are all three. Plus the 3-pack gives a variety of styles. They pair perfectly with 2.5” ties from TheTieBar (above).

▶ Why these Pocket Squares? [ amzn.to/2UfsKtL ]: I like my pocket squares perfectly, well, square. Like straight-out-of-Mad-Men square. The only way to do that is with a stiffer material that keeps its shape. I’ve exhaustively tried dozens of pocket squares, and these are by far the best. It’s how I get the perfectly flat pocket square you see in my videos.

I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous. Today I'm taking a break from teaching law students how to kick ass in law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth.

This is part of a continuing series of "Lawyer Reaction" videos. Got a legal movie or TV show you'd like me to critique? Let me know in the comments!

    I think a solid 25% of the things this guy complains about are not just “not researched,” rather they’re deliberate satire of law school. Like Asher saying “yeah I interviewed for Chief Justice Roberts this summer,” which is absolutely a spoof on the sort of student who brags constantly and makes you feel insecure. You certainly don’t think that they consulted zero law school graduates in the entire making of the show. Are you really resorting to ridiculous claims to fill space in in a YouTube video to make use of your law degree?

    To be honest,the best way I can think of to get away with murder at least in my country is to make the victim be considered missing with no leads,my country is full of deep rainforest and remote plantations,some people can go to the plantation and stay there for days or weeks to watch over the harvest and sale.

    They live away from society in a house in the middle of nowhere,sometimes alone,imagine someone being gone there.
    And then dispose of the body by feeding it to pigs and grind any leftover bones,then spread it over the plantation.

    It is a TV show and as such they never get anything right. Thankfully, I've never seen it.

    1) can you audit your first year (or at least a few classes)?
    2) can law school be done online?

    This entire video was very frustrating to watch. Mainly because you took every. single. thing. so literal and complained most of the time rather than teaching. the show is literally named htgawm for a reason. Annalise is presented to the viewers as the BEST criminal defense attorney so you saying Wes Gibbins could’ve gone elsewhere wouldn’t make sense as the writers made sure to tell the viewers that SHES THE BEST. You would know this if you spent less time critiquing and more time following the storyline. Two, the beginning she mentioned she’ll pick what she calls “the Keating 5.” They’ll aid her with all her big cases etc. so you saying it’s not realistic to pick ppl for a law firm on day one just shows you either DIDN’T listen/pay attention to the writing, or you’re, again, taking things WAY too literal on a fictional TV show. 0/10 for the video.

SINGLE. THING. about law
