Delta Nu sorority president Elle Woods seems to have it all; good looks, a relationship with the campus catch and great taste in clothes. However her life is turned upside-down when her boyfriend, Warner dumps her in an attempt to start getting serious about his future and attend Harvard Law. Determined to win him back, Elle uses a lot of hard work and some charm to get into Harvard Law so she can prove to Warner that she’s serious enough for him. Once at school, she is challenged by her peers, professors and her ex, but with the help of some new friends, Elle realizes her potential and sets out to prove herself to the world.
