I wrote last February at Legal Blog Watch about the imminent release of A Lawyer Walks Into a Bar…, a documentary film that follows six aspiring lawyers as they prepare for and take the California bar exam. I received an update today from co-producer (and Los Angeles lawyer) Evan Fitzmaurice, who reports three developments:

  1. Distribution rights were sold last week.
  2. The film will get a brief review this weekend on the national television program, At the Movies with Ebert & Roeper.
  3. The DVD went on sale today at Amazon.com and should soon follow at major retail outlets.
