There's a Season One release over at Amazon.com.
Are these legit?
I don't see any info over at tvshowsonmdvd.com.

I know Gord Lacey at tvshowsondvd.com, so I've written to him and I'll let you know when he answers (or it may spark him to put a story up about it). Either way, I'll let you know when I find out.

I don't see a release date mentioned, and that's something I always look for. It appears to be just...out. (suspicious)

Well I found the information of it being on DVD on Wikipedia but you can't really take Wikipedia as an accurate source of information sometimes although I do see it on DVD on Amazon.com for the United Kingdom. Here is what Wikipedia linked as its references to L.A Law being released in the United Kingdom:
Season 1: http://www.amazon.com/LA-Law-Season-Harry-Hamlin/dp/B006X534C2/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1338224979&sr=8-1
Season 2: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LA-Law-Season-2-DVD/dp/B006ZMDY8C
Season 3: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LA-Law-Season-3-DVD/dp/B007I5NA2A
Season 4: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LA-Law-Season-4-DVD/dp/B007IT89EK
Season 5: http://www.amazon.co.uk/LA-Law-Season-5-DVD/dp/B007IUIWK0
I haven't heard anything on Seasons 6, 7 and 8 being released yet or it being released here. I don't know if these are legit either.

I heard back from Gord & hears what he had to say...

Whatever being sold on Amazon isn't a proper region 1 release, and is probably sold through a third party seller.

They look a little like boots (I wouldn't put it pas amazon to sell boots).

In a follow-up from Gord he says that the Season One on Amazon.com appears to be a British import.
I'm not sure if it's compatible with USA DVD players.

Usually DVDs that were made for that region can only be able to play in that region.

I received L.A. Law season 1 from Amazon U.S.
It plays well on my NTSC DVD players, even though it says PAL on the packaging. The DVDs are not cleaned up, but clear with decent sound. There are no extras though, not even closed captioning. Still it is great viewing. Susan Dey at her best!

That's interesting how it has no closed captioning or extras. All the DVDS I have ever gotten have always had Closed captioning and most have extras. But at least its clear and has good sound quality.

According to the reviews on the listing. The publisher is a British company but the specs list NTSC.

I'm guessing the lack of extras and features is because it's not being put out by the original studio.

I was thinking the same thing.

I never thought of that. That definitely could be the reason.

I think the reason is because of cost, not because it's not because FOX isn't releasing it. If it's a UK company, it would next to impossible to produce this with a budget to make it profitable. (Assuming it's NOT a bootleg, of course.)

The cost could be the reason to. It probably costed a lot to even get a hold of the film. But it could very well be a bootleg.

Just because it's listed on amazon does not mean it's not a boot.
