* AlwaysIdenticalTwins: Elle's British cousins from the spin-off, Izzy and Annie.

** Elle can come across this way and does have some common traits of one, but {{inverted|trope}} this with her intelligence and depth of character; sometimes it's closer to ObfuscatingStupidity. Her exemplary LSAT score and the fact that she's attending UCLA (it's UCLA in the musical, at least) and getting a 4.0 GPA from there (majoring in Fashion Merchandising) prove that she is pretty intelligent. Also proven when Elle shops for a dress to wear at the supposed-proposal dinner with Warner, a shopkeeper thinks Elle is this and tries to sell an outdated outfit, claims it to be new, for full price to her, but she instantly knows it's not new and on sale, so she refuses to buy it.

So Elle is dumped for being "not serious enough." However, she realizes the perfect way to get Warner back -- by becoming a serious law student. Elle manages to get into Harvard Law School, but this is only the beginning as she strives to prove her worth to Warner, her professors, her fellow students, and even herself, all while dressed in pink and with her Chihuahua Bruiser by her side.

And as she realises that she's actually pretty damn good at the whole law thing, things much more important than Warner enter her life.

** Elle is able to use larger leaps in logic in order to argue her cases such as in both the 'Sperm Donor' example trial and the final trial, which catches people off-guard such as her professor or [[spoiler: Chutney]].

* HairOfGoldHeartOfGold: Elle. For all that she can be a bit tactless at times, is truly caring, feminine, noble, and sweet. Despite her shallow exterior, she has a good heart. She also comes across as the naive innocent compared to all the... um, lawyers.

* ArtisticLicenseLaw: At least one fairly early in the movie: in Stromwell's class (apparently Civil Procedure), Stromwell asks Vivian about ''Gordon v. Steele'' and whether there was diversity jurisdiction in the case. Vivian says there wasn't and Stromwell says she's correct. This is an amazingly wrong answer.[[labelnote:Layman's explanation...]]Legal "diversity" (NotToBeConfusedWith being a TokenMinority) is based on where the parties in a lawsuit live. If they live in different states, there is diversity jurisdiction and the case can go to federal court. The issue in ''Gordon v. Steele'' was whether a college student from Pennsylvania going to college in Idaho lived in Pennsylvania or Idaho. The court's ruling established the modern domicile test (how courts determine where you live for the purposes of the lawsuit), the end result being that there ''was'' diversity jurisdiction. To say that there was no diversity jurisdiction is like saying that ''Brown v. Board of Education'' allowed segregation in schools–it's the total opposite of what it actually means.[[/la

When she herself is defending Brooke, she notices Chutney's perfect, fresh perm and realizes that her alibi of being in the shower at the time of her father's murder was false because the water from the shower would have ruined the chemicals in her hair.]]

** Elle can come across this way and does have some common traits of one, but [[InvertedTrope inverts]] the trope with her intelligence and depth of character; sometimes it's closer to ObfuscatingStupidity. Her exemplary LSAT score and the fact that she's attending UCLA (it's UCLA in the musical, at least) and getting a 4.0 GPA from there (majoring in Fashion Merchandising) prove that she is pretty intelligent.

** As Elle is in a store squealing about trying to find the perfect outfit for her date, a dishonest saleswoman rips the sales tag off a dress, telling her it's one of a kind and just came in. Elle immediately sees what she's trying to do, and asks her a trick question about the stitching and fabric-- thereby exposing the saleswoman as less knowledgeable about clothing design and construction than Elle herself. To top it off, Elle tells her she saw the dress in ''Vogue'' a year ago.

* IvyLeagueForEveryone: Subverted. She has a 4.0 from a UCLA equivalent, near perfect LSAT scores (as in, one point off from a perfect score), and is the president of a relatively large sorority, at which she is incredibly active and prolific. She would have no problem getting into Harvard Law. Law schools are numbers-consious to the extreme degree and give very little preference towards one major over another. Her fashion merchandising major, from a good school, no less, wouldn't hurt and having any sort of extracurricular would be icing on the cake that is a 179 LSAT score.
