What one knows and believes about law, justice, and one’s own legal system is often based on fictional portrayals presented in crime shows, legal dramas, and movies centering on the judicial system. Popular culture reflects beliefs and practices prevalent in society, just as pop-cultural depictions contribute to generally held assumptions about the realistic representation of the justice system and its institutions.
