THE HIGHS AND LOWS OF THE HIGH-PROFILE CASE
What challenges does a lawyer face when representing a client in a high-profile case?
What strategies are utilized to achieve a successful outcome?
Is the media a guardian against the miscarriage of justice or does it exploit human tragedy under the guise of the public’s right to know?
Join the Forum on Law, Culture & Society to find out what an attorney must do in a high-profile case to excel in the court of law and the court of public opinion.
With three very special guests from the media, legal profession, and judiciary:
• Benjamin Brafman
Called by CNN legal analyst Jeffrey Toobin the best courtroom lawyer he has ever seen, Brafman navigates both the shoals of the courtroom and the media glare on courthouse steps with equal aplomb.
• Geraldo Rivera
A lawyer and TV personality, Rivera has been reporting national and international news for 40 years. His critically acclaimed coverage of the O.J. Simpson civil trial verdict set an all-time CNBC ratings record.
• Hon. Edwin Torres
Retired New York State Supreme Court Justice Torres has presided over numerous cases of public interest and has translated his real world knowledge of crime into bestselling thrillers Carlito’s Way and Q & A.
The event is the third installment in the Forum’s popular series Trials and Error: Behind the Headlines of America’s Most Controversial Cases, specially produced by longtime Manhattan Assistant District Attorney Joel Seidemann.
