  • "Examines the repressive cloistered world of first-year students at Harvard Law School, and the relationship of a student, his professor and the professor's daughter."
  • "Expecting only the basic pressures of attending Harvard Law School, a serious, hard-working student finds himself the fearful adversary of the school's most imperious, sarcastic professor.

  • "A Harvard Law School student falls for the daughter of his tyrannical professor."@en
  • "Drama about a freshman at Harvard Law School who realizes that the biggest obstacle to getting good grades is a brilliant but tough professor. His classroom becomes an excellent arena for some and a torture pit for others. The student's problems intensify when he falls in love with the professor's daughter."
  • "A brilliant but confused first-year student at Harvard Law School is desperate to gain approval from his dictatorial professor. When he falls in love with the professor's daughter he has difficulty reconciling his professional ambition with his personal needs. Balancing comedy and drama in its focus on the highly competitive milieu of law school, this 'youth' film emphasises the students' drive to conform and succeed in traditional terms over any rebellious spirit. John Houseman's performance as the professor turned him from a stage and film producer into a popular actor."@en
  • "Based on the original movie, the television show is a classroom drama about students in a law school (based on Harvard Law School). The two main characters are: Charles W. Kingsfield, a stern but fair contract law professor; and James T. Hart, a student who idolizes him. The Paper Chase was voted the best new drama of 1978. Although the critics raved, it didn't get the "numbers" that CBS wanted and it was cancelled after its first season in 1979. Four years later, Showtime picked it up and made three new seasons of episodes from 1983 to 1986."@en
