Courtroom drama recommendations please

I'm after recommendations for good courtroom dramas that your teens enjoyed.
No more than 15 certificate please and I'd appreciate both UK and US programmes. Thank you in advance.

One of the best films I ever watched was My Cousin Vinnie. It's American and a 15, but the courtroom scenes are very, very good (not sure how true to life!). Almost inspired me to drop teaching and become a lawyer!

The Good Wife is brilliant - adult themes but nothing too explicit in terms or language or sex (from what I can remember!).

If it's something to make them think about the reviewing of evidence, rather than the court process, then 12 Angry Men. It's in black and white and my teens started off sniffing and were then gripped.

How about The people vs oj Simpson? Not sure what the age certificate is but it is a very good series.
Also A time to kill came out when i was a teenager and i thought it was amazing - haven't watched in a long time though!
A few good men? Again i haven't seen it in a long time but it's surely got the most well known court room quote in it!

Law and Order - there's a UK version and there's also Trial by Jury which focuses solely on the court end. Oldie but a goodie!

How to get away with murder - it's on Netflix, best programme I've ever seen.

Suits - although they rarely make it to court!

We've just finished watching The Good Wife and I can definitely recommend it.

Agree with 12 Angry Men. And maybe A Time to Kill.
