Sounding a bit annoyed, the high school student wanted to know where the action was. Where, he asked the judge, was all the emotion and drama and tension that always seemed to fill the courtroom scenes on television? Superior Court Judge Judith M. Ryan had to laugh. "Well," she confessed, "the truth is that most of the time this place doesn't look a whole lot like 'L.A. Law.' It just doesn't get that glamorous all the time." That was the scene played out in courtrooms around the county Monday as about 200 high school students, taking part in the local celebration of Law Day, got to observe and take part in the workings of the legal system by tagging along with judges, prosecutors and defense attorneys in their daily routines.
