A rookie defense attorney who defends his childhood best friend for murder in his first trial. Will he ace the case or fail the bail? Today we’re going to find out if Phoenix Wright is really an ace attorney. Stay until the end for my Legal Realism Grade!

Somehow this one never ended up on my radar. I haven’t played the game or the watched the anime, but I can see why people love it. But that doesn’t mean it’s realistic… Today I’m breaking down the first episode of Phoenix Wright. Are there other episodes that are especially good? Would you like to see me react to another particular Phoenix Wright episode? Let me know which one!

Custom Suits:
Tie Clips/Bars:
Pocket Squares:

▶ Why Indochino Suits? (50% off Premium Suits + free shipping) []: Off-the-rack suits NEVER fit right. Indochino makes fully custom suits that fit perfectly using any material I want, with all of the options I want. And they cost 1/3rd of what normal suits costs. I’ve purchased them with my own money for years, so I’m thrilled they are now a sponsor.

▶ Why Ties from TheTieBar? (Free shipping on orders over $50) []: Normal ties are too fat. Skinny ties are too skinny. So these days I only wear ties that are exactly 2.5” wide. They are fashionable without being hipster. You see them in all of my videos. TieBar ties are perfect, come in every color I want, and never cost more than $19.

▶ Why these Tie Clips? []: It’s really hard to find affordable tie clips that are the right size (1.5”), look good, and are great quality. These tie bars are all three. Plus the 3-pack gives a variety of styles. They pair perfectly with 2.5” ties from TheTieBar (above).

▶ Why these Pocket Squares? []: I like my pocket squares perfectly, well, square. Like straight-out-of-Mad-Men square. The only way to do that is with a stiffer material that keeps its shape. I’ve exhaustively tried dozens of pocket squares, and these are by far the best. It’s how I get the perfectly flat pocket square you see in my videos.

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 kick ass in 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.

  1. for the record in the game it explains alot of things that are not explained in this episode…. as well. they do put stuff forward to be evidence in the game. and stuff like that. and a big part of the game is calling out people on their mistakes hahaha

  2. It's based on a game. The object of the game is to use your logical reasoning to solve questions.

    Like the question the judge posed about the slower clock problem and "can you prove it?"

    It's not about the procedure, it's about logical deduction.

  3. I'm not an Ace Attorney fan in any capacity but I do know a tiny bit about the legal going ons. Wright does collect evidence, he does talk to witnesses, he does enter evidence into discovery

  4. Objection… kinda. Most of the weirdness in Ace Attorney stems from the rule (in the video games at least) that, due to judicial backlog, all trials must be resolved within about three days. This means no lengthy discovery process. There's also no jury system. Japanese law doesn't normally use juries except in some special cases where they have citizens who have some training act as lay-judges. Apparently Japan doesn't exactly have a counterpart to the fifth amendment. From what I understand, someone does kinda have the right to remain silent but apparently the prosecution can delay the legal process dramatically and detain someone for much longer if they refuse to testify. Apparently the goal of the Japanese prosecutorial system is basically to convince somebody to confess because it can often take longer to be investigated if you refuse to make statements than the jail penalty is for just confessing to many smaller crimes. Apparently the accused can be interrogated without their counsel being present so it might not be so unusual for a defense lawyer to not know everything about his client. Much like how most American criminal cases go to a plea deal, most Japanese criminal cases end up resulting in the accused simply confessing to the crime.I saw an interview once were a Japanese defense lawyer called this system "captive justice" since suspects are so frequently detained until they are willing to confess.

    I haven't the faintest idea of how Japanese law treats evidence or discovery.

  5. It was more of an investigation where anyone could talk at any time. It should have been around a table and not in a courtroom. Instead of a judge and lawyers there should have been detectives and criminologists.

  6. OBJECTION: Also as a true anime professional expert, every anime I’ve seen the author made all the things up like the script. So when the anime comes out everything doesn’t really makes sense it’s fictional. So why are you hating it, it’s based on Japanese law and a mix with the American law. That doesn’t make you think that Phoenix Wright is a bad lawyer. Once again I TELL YOU ITS AN ANIME THAT PEOPLE WATCH AS ENTERTAINMENT NOT AS A LESSON HOW THE REAL LAW GOES. If I make my self clear, I rate you a f- for what you did to the anime, it was stupid making of this video. Now once again I make my self clear that it’s just a show that entertains us. So why are you judging on the anime, there’s a saying goes like this” don’t judge a book by its cover”. This based on it when he watch the 1st ep. And this for the last time, ITS AN ANIME THA DOESN’T MAKE ANY SENSE WHATSOEVER IT IS but some of your description was accurate. BUT that doesn’t mean you say it’s a bad example of lawyering. I said enough and I make myself clear about do you understand now legaegal.

  7. Objection:

    In an inquisitorial judicial system derived from Roman / Napoleonic Law, which most countries outside the US – including Japan – have, the judge would indeed be the first to question the witness. Crossexamination would be conducted afterwards by prosecution and defense.

  8. The game takes it's time and is much more deliberate. The abridged version in the anime really skips steps and makes it more absurd.
    The game it's self is still absurd, such as the 3 day maximum trials, the fusion of Japanese and American law, and other things.

  9. Objection: the witness objecting to Ace's treatment of him on the witness stand was asserting the importance of his job that he was taken away from in a manner that a Japanese person might. That is, he was pointing out how upstanding he was in society because he was extremely loyal to his company, and he loathed being away from his job one minute, much less an entire day, as we have been given to believe of this trial.

  10. Objection: in the sentence, "It is very problematic that here the defense is not allowed to make any opening statement whatsoever." Legal Eagle has used the word "problematic" when he should have used the word "problem." These two words are not synonyms.

  11. In Japan, the criminal justice system has a conviction rate that exceeds 99%. If you are brought to trial in Japan it's probably best to just apologize for bringing shame upon your family and thanking the judge for being just in your punishment.

  12. Objection! Is that little white spot on your right cheek gray hair? Or do you always have a bird poo in the same spot that you never clean off for some unknown reason? Also, do you ever blow your nose with the handkerchief in your pocket?

    In japan lawyer get badges, which look like the pin Phoenix has in his jacket, hence are not like police badges. I think it started in the Meiji period.

    You should really invite a Japanese lawyer or expert in Japanese law, I'd like to see his opinion.

  14. Question. Would the reason to dismiss the case instead of finding him not guilty be because if further evidence, say a video of the criminal and Larry, appears showing he was an accomplice be because if found not guilty here mean he can't be re-trialed? Also could a dismissed case be brought back if new evidence was found?

  15. I remember an interview with the creator of the game saying that this was based on a very exaggerated version of Japan's legal system at the time so take from that what you will

  16. Objection… I've seen a few of your videos, and they are entertaining, but you keep pushing this tactic about how to dress in court. Why does the law care about the looks of a person rather that just finding the facts of any situation. Justice is supposed to be blind… Right? I mean I understand not showing up to court with obscene clothing but, why not just jeans and a t-shirt over a suit? What a person wears shouldn't even be a factor in whether they are guilty or not.
