See You in Court

Strong emotions. Wonderful pleas. Terrier-like prosecutors and doubting juries, with Lady Justice's blindfold in the background. What more appeals to the imagination than the court drama?

Interesting films have been made about law and jurisdiction, and not by the least directors. Billy Wilder (Witness for the Prosecution), Alfred Hitchcock (Murder!) And in The Netherlands Fons Rademakers (Mijn vriend), among others, made memorable contributions to the genre.

Eye has developed a special program for lawyers of all denominations, from lawyers, judges and court staff to civil-law notaries and mediators, See You in Court. See You in Court brings classics, documentaries and recent films with law and justice in the lead role and an introduction by fellow lawyers or Eye programmers.
