Humanities Lecture Series

Location: Woodruff Auditorium, Kansas Union
In the fourth installment of the 2005-2006 Humanities Lecture Series, Scott Turow, attorney and author of Ultimate Punishment: A Lawyer?s Reflections on Dealing with the Death Penalty 2003), will comment on his involvement over the years with the issue of capital punishment. He is both a former prosecutor and a criminal defense lawyer who has wrestled with the legal and moral questions the death penalty presents. Turow is America?s most distinguished writer about the law and a leading lawyer in his native Chicago who has been frequently involved with death penalty litigation. As a writer, he has approached the subject in fiction and non-fiction and has never found easy answers to any of the difficult questions surrounding capital punishment. Turow is also the author of Reversible Errors (2002) and Presumed Innocent (1987).
