The paper investigates whether watching legal series leads to law school enroll- ment. First, the study analyses if series consumption is related to enrolling at law school. This is achieved by analyzing data of 1,353 students from Münster, Germany. Hence, lo- gistic regressions are conducted. Thereafter, the odds ratios of studying law are compared for the periods before and after the first broadcasting of the series Suits. Results suggest that watching legal series is highly significantly related to studying law. Moreover, findings indicate that the broadcasting of Suits is followed by a rise in application and enrollment numbers at Münster Law School.
