Show Synopsis
The curtain rises on Delta Nu Sorority House at University California, Los Angeles. Here, we find the Delta Nu sisters preparing for the arrival of their sorority president, Elle Woods. The house is abuzz with rumors that Elle's long-time boyfriend, Warner Huntington, plans to propose at dinner.

As evening falls, we find Elle and Warner enjoying a romantic dinner by candlelight. While Elle anxiously awaits the proposal, Warner explains that it's time to get serious and take the next step… by breaking up. He doesn't believe she is serious enough about her future.

Elle devises a plan to join Warner in Cambridge by applying to Harvard Law School, much to the dismay and skepticism of her parents.
We move to halls of Harvard, where Emmett Forrest, an alum and teaching assistant, is addressing a group of first-year law students.
At Criminal Law 101 with Professor Callahan, Elle spots Warner and surprises him.

With guidance from Emmett, Elle realizes that it is time to focus on changing her priorities and sets out to do her best. After weeks and weeks of studying, Elle wins a case against Warner in debate class. Professor Callahan is pleasantly surprised and asks her to submit a résumé for his prestigious internship.

When the list is posted, we see Elle watch Warner and Vivienne (Warner’s new love) embrace – they have made the cut as two of Callahan's interns. Warner goes to one knee and proposes; Vivienne accepts. Elle is heartbroken and ready to accept defeat, but Emmett approaches Elle with the list… and she has made it! Feeling elated and victorious, Elle realizes that this moment is so much better than any moment she had ever shared with Warner. Elle is finally moving on.

When Emmett tries to coax Elle into sharing a secret with the rest of the team, Elle stands her ground and refuses to jeopardize her client’s trust. Elle wins the case, the crowd cheers and Elle is elated. Elle has solved the case and sets, the client, Brooke Wyndham free! Warner, who has been dumped by Vivienne, pleads to Elle to take him back. Elle sits down and explains to Warner that she is now a new girl and she realizes that she is more than just a hair color. We transition to graduation day, where we find Elle and the other classmates celebrating. Elle has finally found her true love: Emmett Forrest.
