A master of the courtroom stage, who possessed an uncanny understanding of human character, Clarence Darrow was arguably the greatest trial lawyer of the twentieth century. He was an adamant opponent of capital punishment and a passionate proponent of civil and human rights. Often called the "Attorney for the Damned," he fought for the underdog and took on criminal cases thought to be hopeless. Yet, while commanding respect as a trial lawyer, Darrow was often embroiled in bitter controversy for his unpopular stands on many issues and criticized for his purported unethical professional behavior. This spellbinding and realistic character portrait of Darrow portrays his deeply held beliefs and hard fought courtroom battles. Replete with humor, humanity and intense courtroom drama, the movie engages attendees in four of the great defense lawyer's most famous cases between 1910 and 1928: Loeb and Leopold, Henry Sweet, the McNamara Brothers bombing of the LA Times Building and the Scopes "Monkey Trial." Using Darrow's own thoughts and courtroom summations, the movie explores timeless social, legal and ethical issues and provides a fresh and engaging tool to facilitate discussion of ethical behavior in and out of the courtroom.

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.
