    This was a train wreck of a trial, but there was a stand out quote:
    According to bird law, three strikes and you’re out! Bye, bye birdie. Ready boys and girls, because this is where it gets good. Ryan McPoyle didn’t attack Liam-Royal did. And Lion was lying about Royal attacking Liam to protect Royal from the chair. Or lethal injection. Or perhaps some sort of small bird guillotine. I wouldn’t understand the physics of it-I’m not an executioner. I’m just the best [] bird lawyer in the world.
    I’m sorry, sir, but I am the best bird lawyer in the world.
    I get asked a lot about whether being a practicing attorney is like being a lawyer on TV. I love watching legal movies and courtroom dramas. It's one of the reasons I decided to become a lawyer. But sometimes they make me want to pull my hair out because they are ridiculous. Today I'm taking a break from teaching law students how to crush law school to take on lawyers in the movies and on TV. While all legal movies and shows take dramatic license to make things more interesting (nobody wants to see hundreds of hours of brief writing), many of them have a grain of truth.

+David Ortiz Certainly true, but that is because of the release mechanism and not the drug itself. Adderall XR capsules have two types beads inside, half IR and half XR, the latter of which releases after four hours. Amphetamines half life is 3-4 hours so yes, some is left after 12-16 hours. The main duration of action though is about 8, at least that's when it's most active.

Charlie's not a lawyer at all. He's an eccentric janitor who, several seasons back, suddenly decided he's an expert at "bird law" because in an opening scene they were randomly arguing over whether you're allowed to keep a certain type of bird (gull I think) as a pet. The joke is that he's so stupid that he'll put a tie on and confidently derail court precedings with his gibberish.

Objection! You need to review my favorites: The Practice (maybe the sequel - Boston Legal - as well), The Lincoln Lawyer, The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and whatever interesting legal issues in Thank You for Smoking. I'm probably forgetting something - was there any trialing in The Devil's Advocate? Thank you for putting some educational material on Youtube, while making it fun. I'm not an American, and I still have always wondered about the wrong information I learn from films on the matter. Although so far most of the things you say seem more like common sense, I wouldn't have thought about all of them.

While it is funny to analyze this case I think whole point of it is a case so absurd and so wrong on almost every level for humor through absurdity. Then again, humor of counter absurdity is part of taking the absurdity seriously or as we call it "the straight man" I think the counter to that is the other legal episode where a mock court while absurd is also actually doing a good job as a court to the extent of that being funny through it's absurdity. Good law grading, because humor is subjective and hard to rate.

OBJECTION!! Charlie Kelly has claimed a vast knowledge of bird law many times before the “trial of the Century”. Bird Law originated during the HIGHLY heated debate between Charlie, Dennis and Mac as to weather one could keep a hummingbird as a pet.... REMEMBER: BIRD LAW IS NOT GOVERNED BY REASON

Point of Clarification: Jack Kelly (Charlie's associate) has in previous episodes showed an intense desire to have bigger hands, and even idolized the opposing lawyers hands in previous episodes, this is why he wears the fake hand gloves to court.

Objection: In addition to not being able to question a second witness while you have the first witness on the stand, a bird cannot serve as a witness in a court for two reasons: 1. It is not a legally recognized person 2. Even if it were, you could not prove that that swallow understands right from wrong or true from false and then take an oath on that fact. Now while that question was posed to Matthew Liebman about Parrots, I think it is safe to assume that any bird would technically fail to pass either of those standards.

The reason for the fake hands are because for the last 5-6 season's maybe more Jack Kelly has been ashamed with the size of his hands 🤣🤣🤣 like most of the side splitting jokes on this show it's long running.

The fake hands hark back to another episode where Charlie's weird uncle and the other attorney who hates them meet and the uncle has tiny hands which embarrass him. He mentions that the other lawyer has nice, big hands and when they take a picture together asks him to put his hands over the uncle's so it looks as though the uncle has large hands.
