The Brooklyn Legal Aid Society's Criminal Division Unit is the subject of a new two-part reality series on National Geographic. Entitled Criminal Defense: And Justice For All, the series will premiere tonight and showcases the prestigious criminal defense unit, which is the largest public defender program in the country, handling more than 230,000 cases annually with around 550 staff attorneys.

The show is a sort of counterbalance to HBO's recent documentary on the Sex Crimes Unit of the Manhattan DA's office, which became embroiled in scandal after several high profile miscues, notably the "Rape Cop" trial of former NYPD officers Kenneth Moreno and Franklin Mata and the rape charges against former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Khan. The head of the unit who was the subject of the documentary, Lisa Friel, left the DA's office last summer amid rumors that she was actually fired.

Here's a clip from the show in which Legal Aid attorney Adam Heyman climbs a fire escape in an attempt to prove that the police's testimony in the case of his client was false. The show's first episode airs tonight at 10 p.m.
