The premise of the show is pretty absurd. The idea that someone would be such a "brilliant legal mind" that anyone would be willing to risk all of this nonsense to keep him makes no sense. Legal work isn't like computer science or the like. There are a lot more people who can do it well then there are awesome jobs. What would make someone valuable to a big firm is their connections and the business they can bring in. The value of an Ivy education isn't that they can teach you to be a better lawyer, it's the connections you make to other future movers and shakers. An attorney wouldn't be indispensable to a big firm like that until he had been around for at least a decade or so, and a fake Harvard degree makes him much worse than useless.

EDIT: i've only seen a couple of episodes, so the premise might be a lot different than I am thinking. If so, please disregard.

Boston Legal seemed like it was written by people who went to law school but never practiced. The discussions are like law school exam questions but entirely unlike anything that actually happens in the practice of law.

I've only watched half of season one but:

Whats real:
- your partner (i.e. your boss) yells at you for no reason, gives impossible deadlines, expects you to know everything there is to know about your files
- you generally get to brief your partner while he is in transit from one place to the next
- document review is a pain. and then some.

Whats unreal:
- you (i.e. the rookie associate) can waltz into your partners office, can talk back and be generally disrespectful without being sacked immediately
- getting it on with a hot coworker

I won't go into how ridiculous the basic premise is because thats already been done to death
