Professor Keating, Criminal Law professor at Middletown and top defense attorney, picks five of her top students to join her at her firm. No one is more surprised than Wes when he is chosen.

2) Wes Breaks the Rules for Rebecca
Wes soon proves he's just as deserving as the rest of the Keating Five. He's willing to give it his all for a case -- and what (or whom) he believes in. After Wes realizes Griffin is going to let Rebecca take the fall for Lila's murder, he creates a fake lawyer ID card so he can meet with her at the jail. He poses as a public defender and wants to know what's on the phone he discovered. But Rebecca isn’t talking. In fact, she exposes Wes as a law student! Well, can't say he didn't try. "A" for effort, Puppy!
