Part II of this series examines ways lawyers have tried to take advantage of, or negate, the potentially powerful shadows that popular culture casts on civil and criminal trials. A juror is interviewed for his comparison of a recent trial to what he had previously seen on TV and in the movies, and here his expectations versus his experience on the jury is examined.
“The InQuiring Lawyer,” a special section of The Colorado Lawyer, addresses topics in a round table discussion with judges, lawyers, law students and professors, politicians, economists, business leaders, entrepreneurs, journalists, gadflies, children, “and know-it-alls, (myself included),” remarks Mr. Sandgrund.
