What are some movies with good courtroom trials?

Criminal trial?

Like The Exorcism of Emily Rose, that has a good trial. What else? I would prefer recent years, (2000+). But if its really good I would watch older ones too

    There's one with Paul Newman called The Verdict (1982) that I found to be good.

    Here's the plot:

    Frank Galvin, an alcoholic lawyer tries to redeem his reputation by taking on a difficult medical malpractice case. He accepts the case after he's approached by the the family of a woman who has been left in a coma following an operation at a large Catholic hospital. At first he's hoping for a quick cash settlement, but when he see's the victim in the hospital he decides that he must take the case to trial, despite the powerful opposition.
