His passions were protection of the environment, civil rights, freedom of speech and the right of the individual to non-conformity and dissent.


When William O. Douglas retired from the U.S. Supreme Court in 1975, he had served longer than any other justice in its history and had helped to decide some of the most important cases in the history of the nation. Anecdote, humor and painful remembrances are used to explore some of the most explosive issues of William O. Douglas' thirty-six year tenure on the U.S. Supreme Court. Douglas wrestles with balancing what he calls the "wilderness mind" with the often-hostile adversarial conflicts created by his controversial opinions and his active public life. He addresses the issues about which he was most passionate as he reflects on Brown v. Board of Education, the "McCarthy Era" and the Vietnam War. William O. Douglas left a legacy that calls for vigilance to protect human rights and action to protect the earth's environment. The movie explores that legacy, and provokes thought about our responsibilities, not only as lawyers, but also as citizens of the world.

The movie has four scenes and will be followed by a filmed panel discussion. The program also includes a Moderated Online Discussion via Chatroom, through which attendees can ask questions and engage in a real time live discussion about ethical issues in legal practice and other concerns raised in the movie. In the Discussion attendees are asked to focus on the ethical issues demonstrated in the play relating to the ABA Model Rules of Professional Conduct.

Written materials are provided in PDF format and may be downloaded by attendees.
