I'm curious about how the concept of attorney client privilege has been treated by popular movies and to a lesser extend, television. What I am looking for is:
* short scenes that discuss or touch on attorney-client privilege or attorney work product issues.
* especially in the civil, rather than than criminal, context.
* especially depictions that are humorous, overwrought, totally incorrect, etc.
Any suggestions would be very helpful. I'm hoping to incorporate short clips into a presentation, so the easier something is to find on Youtube, the better (though I wouldn't be against pulling clips out of the source).
