essay readings & discussion with co-authors
The first-ever collection of essays offering a response to the “Cocktail Party Question” asked of every criminal lawyer: how do you represent guilty criminals?
Contributing authors are some of the most experienced lawyers and teachers in the country: Barbara Babcock, Paul Butler, Tucker Carrington, Angela Davis, Alan Dershowitz, Monroe Freedman, Vida Johnson, Joseph Margulies, William Montross, Ann Roan, Meghan Shapiro, David Singleton, Abbe Smith, Robin Steinberg, Michael Tigar, and Alice Woolley. It is a must-buy for lawyers, law students, and anyone interested in crime, punishment, race, poverty, and the motivations of criminal lawyers.
Co-authors Abbe Smith, Joe Margulies, Tucker Carrington and David Singleton will conduct short readings of their essays - an open discussion will follow. A celebratory reception will commence at 5:30pm.
