Hi pts55s.
Good first poll attempt.
Polls are limited to 35 choices.
Sorry to inform you but a similar poll just was published 2 weeks ago.
Live Poll: Which Movie Best Makes Legal History?
The choices are not exactly the same, but are close.
The poll board supervisor, Dan Dassow will stop by on your poll page here and give you some good advice.

Not only that but the general term of reference is "legal / courtroom drama", that said, one can make a poll about legal thrillers but then a wiser choice would be to focus on real thrillers, not plain dramas (no matter how thrilling they are)

Thank you for your poll suggestion. Welcome to the IMDb Poll message board.

I noticed that you created your Get Satisfaction account today (6-May-2019). Once someone responds to a post only an admin can edit the post.

From the list without hesitation, I'll choose 12 Angry Men, I think the list is missing from The Pelican Brief(1993)

Tough one and so many excellent ones to choose from, but I'll take Amistad!
