Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Created by Eric Koch and David Walker, It's the Law represented a collaboration between the CBC and the Canadian Bar Association. In the traditon of the old Saturday Evening Post feature "You Be the Judge," the series illustrated everyday legal situations, usually by dramatizing actual court cases. The purpose was to demonstrate the workings of justice, and to allow the viewer to second-guess the solutions of cases involving personal rights and ethics. Telecast on Tuesday nights from May 1 to June 26, 1956, It's the Law was more or less revived four years later as Case for the Court.
