This chapter is concerned with the treatment of law and legal negotiation in popular culture. It suggests that popular depictions of adversarial and competitive negotiations dangerously perpetuate the notion that legal negotiations are about winning of bettering the other side. It decentres the trial and courtroom as the central locus of where justice and legal process if depicted in popular culture and encourages creators of popular culture to take a closer look at how negotiations are evolving to solve problems.

Keywords:   legal negotiation, popular culture, law, trial, courtroom, justice, legal process
