* The military actually has an "army of lawyers," in the form of Judge Advocate General Corps, which is literally the army of army (or, navy or air force) lawyers.

* TruthInTelevision in a more literal way: the US Army has the Judge Advocate General's department, its own legal corps; up until reorganisation in the 1990's, the British Army had its own Royal Army Legal Department (now subsumed into the Royal Logistic Corps). In both cases - if not an army of lawyers in uniform, then certainly at least a batallion.

* TruthInTelevision for civil litigation. If the defendant is the one with money, they ''will'' amass a small army for depositions for the purpose of scaring the defendant and over-burdening the plaintiff's counsel. Discrimination cases are especially contentious, as the institution will want to settle without admitting fault and the plaintiff wants recognition of harm, so sending "ten guys in black suits" to the first deposition is a ''great'' way to coerce a settlement. [[SarcasmMode Hypothetically, anyway.]]

* Mentioned on ''Series/TheWestWing'' when a congressman asks Josh to help him secure more money for a government lawsuit against tobacco companies. When Josh protests that the case has already consumed $30 million in federal money, the congressman lets him know that just ''one'' of the five tobacco companies involved has 342 lawyers on the case. (They're also outspending the government 10-to-1.)
