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.
the Co-authors will conduct short readings of their essays - an open discussion will follow.
A celebratory reception will commence at 7:30 pm.
"When I was a criminal
defense lawyer I was asked "The Question” so many times I got sick of it.
It takes an essay to fully answer, and this book has 15 brilliant ones.
Some of the essays are laugh-out-loud funny, others deeply moving. Read
them all and you’ll understand why everyone – guilty or innocent, you or me –
is entitled to a good lawyer.” - John Grisham
