Judge Lise Pearlman (Ret.) discusses thirteen of the most famous trials of the 20th Century, and how the lessons learned from these trials can help to eliminate bias from the legal profession. Judge Pearlman provides a riveting account of the 1968 Huey P. Newton trial and the changes made as a result to improve fairness in trials. The Huey P. Newton trial challenged the systemic racism in jurisprudence, forever changing the American legal system. Included in this program is a reenactment of Charles R. Garry's voir dire in this landmark 1968 trial, a scene still discussed in law schools today. -- from the publisher.
