Abstract

The public also receives information on law and the legal professions from fictional entertainment, which has become part of every-day discourse on crime. The American high-gloss television series The Good Wife since 2009 not only dramatizes work and private lives of lawyers but also responds to recent events and debates. With its overall message, The Good Wife joins the liberal camp in the legalpolitical debate.
