The greatest female lawyer movies range from small-town courtroom dramas all the way to the Supreme Court.

Of course, we know that there are no shortage of high-powered women in law, many of whom make their way to politics. Women like Hilary Clinton, Ruth Bader Ginsburg and Sandra Day O'Connor are just a few of the real-world examples of women taking control in the courtroom.
