During the trial, when Adam Bonner is talking to the jury, he makes a few slips of the tongue. You can see Amanda's hand jump to cover her mouth to keep from laughing in several shots, while in other shots her hand is on the table in front of her.

Plot holes 

Midway through the trial, Kip uses the Bonner's piano to play an early version of a new song he's writing that is in such rough shape, it doesn't have complete lyrics. Yet shortly afterward - and long before the trial is over - the song has already been recorded, played on the radio and is reportedly a big hit.
