This was an accurate depiction of the 70’s, although in state universities the stress level was rather lower. Basically she is screen candy.

I never took part in a study group in law school, so I can't evaluate that part, but it showed the stress on the students very well, which is definitely a part of finals prep, as well as daily classroom experience, right down to the nervous glances by students sitting near the "victim" who's been selected to recite and "discuss" an assigned case. The Paper Chase (717) IMDb 7.2 1h ... the fact they take notes on paper in notebooks, and most of all the dorm, where there is one pay phone for all the students on the floor, who line up to use it ... which actually wasn't too bad for a "soapy" show, but never had the impact of this movie.
