Pro Say Movie Club - Legally Blonde
Listen now
For the first episode of our new summer movie series, we’re watching the iconic 2001 law school comedy “Legally Blonde,” in which sorority queen Elle Woods conquers Harvard Law. What, like it’s hard? What begins as a scheme to win back her boyfriend turns into a journey of self-realization for Elle, who teaches us along the way that lawyers come in all forms, and that staying true to yourself is the key to unlocking your full potential. Or, put another way: You can wear pink and still be a successful attorney. We’ll break down our favorite scenes, what the movie got right or got wrong about the law and its lasting impact on the legal industry on this week’s episode.
