Hart is chosen by Kingsfield to assist him and a third-year student to prepare for a case in New York City. The 3-L, nearing graduation, is busy seeking future employment, and dumps the majority of the work on Hart. Kingsfield detects this, and dismisses the 3-L from the case, leaving Hart as his only assistant. Hart accompanies Kingsfield to the Big Apple, where preparation can take a back seat to the nightlife. Kingsfield's counterpart is played by George Petrie, who also played J.R. Ewing's lawyer Harv Smithfield on 'Dallas'. Written by
In "The Apprentice", Hart has received a special honor unheard of for first year students. He's been asked by Kingsfield to be on a team assisting him with a case that is going to the Court of Appeals. He's thrilled by this excitement wanes A LOT when he finds working with a hot-shot third year student isn't all it's cracked up to be. That's because this other student is a jerk--even if he is the president of "Law Review". The guy dumps almost all the work on Hart and what little he does do is pretty limp. Kingsfield soon catches on--and dismisses the jerk. But, now it's all up to Hart as Kingsfield's only assistant! Can he handle all this pressure and prestige or will he end up making a food of himself in front of his idol? While this particular episode is not among the most exciting or noteworthy of the season, it's very solid and does a lot to develop Hart's character--both his strengths and weaknesses. Well done.
