* NightmareFuel: What happens to Jeff - an innocent man who still ended up going to jail despite all the evidence, and is cruelly raped by the prisoners and killed by the guards because of it - is enough to make you question the entire legal system.

* GreyAndGrayMorality: The entire legal system as depicted in the film. The judges are either borderline insane like Rayford, or downright evil like Fleming. The prosecutors are more interested in punishing people for minor offenses while pursuing high-profile cases that make them look good in the press. Most of the public defenders have either surrendered to apathy or are so swamped with cases that they can't apply any sound judgment handling them, and even the ones who want to do good like Kirkland can't break through the wall of corruption and incompetence overwhelming the courts.

* GoodLawyersGoodClients: Played completely straight with Arthur Kirkland. Every client we see him defend is either innocent or very sympathetic, until he's blackmailed into representing Judge Fleming on rape charges, leading to his infamous breakdown.

* DoesNotLikeSpam: Kirkland's grandfather does not care for yams, as he repeatedly points out before (and during) a Thanksgiving dinner Arthur takes him and a friend to.

* BeamMeUpScotty: Kirkland's big line in his courtroom blowup ("The whole ''trial'' is out of order!") is frequently misquoted as "The whole ''system'' is out of order!"
