A Survey of the Reaction of Lawyers to the Television Series "Behind the Law".
Brown, Robert M.
In a survey carried out in March 1967, questionnaires were sent to about 39 percent of the lawyers in New York State to find out their reactions to the TV series 'BEHIND THE LAW'. Of seven percent of the lawyers returning the questionnaires; one half had seen at least one or two of the shows, and 12 percent had viewed ten or more. Almost all of the respondents thought the programs served a specific need for New York attorneys, and three-fourths of them thought that TV is either 'better than' or 'about the same' as other media in continuing legal education. Most of the lawyers considered the presentation good to excellent as a medium of instruction, and over half of them thought that future TV series on law should deal with estates, criminal law, trial, appeal, taxes, and real estates. A full and detailed report of the survey, with questionnaires, is furnished. (GO)
