Overview

Courtroom trials are the stuff of great human drama, with involving tales scandalous deeds, reversals of fortune, impassioned rhetoric. But if trials are theater, they are also history, and can provide a window through which to examine the attitudes and passions of their day. In this eye-opening course, esteemed professor, author, and civil liberties lawyer Alan Dershowitz brings his unique insights and experience to bear on some of the most celebrated and intriguing U.S. courtroom battles of the past one hundred years, presenting a fascinating discussion covering the facts of each case, the nature of the available evidence, the courtroom tactics used by the defense and the prosecution, and the contemporary cultural milieu of the trial. He also illuminates the larger, more far-reaching issues of the cases, and the ways in which they shaped the landscape of American justice.

    Fabulous Content and Presentation

    I have a master's in health law, and bought the box-set on a whim. I even hesitated about the price, but boy am I glad I bought it! It is some of the most impressive lectures I've ever heard on law. The lectures are presented in a way that anyone, from novice to JD, can benefit from listening. I highly, highly recommend this box set.
