Educating Lawyers Now and Then

2008, Legal Education editor

An Essay Comparing the 2007 and 1914 Carnegie Foundation Reports on Legal Education

And Justice For All

2008, Criminal Justice, Criminal Law and Procedure, Political Science editor

By: William M. Kunstler

In this reprint, Kunstler explores ten criminal trials, including the cases of Mary Surratt, Alger Hiss, the Rosenbergs, and Sacco and Vanzetti. William M. Kunstler defended many controversial clients and throughout his career he believed that the “fixed preconceptions of the community” can contribute more to the outcome of criminal trials than the quantity or quality of the evidence. Kunstler shows readers evidence of the overwhelming influence of societal attitudes working against the defendants in each case.
