Scott Turow to Speak at Yale
Q Best-selling novelist Scott Turow will speak at Yale University Law School on Thursday, Feb. 18, at 4:10 p.m. in the Levinson Auditorium, 127 Wall St.
Turow, author of “Presumed Innocent,” “Burden of Proof,” “Pleading Guilty” and “The Laws of Our Fathers,” will speak on the topic: “Where Have You Gone, Perry Mason? The Image of Lawyers.” His appearance is sponsored by the Knight Journalism Fellows at Yale Law School.
Turow’s gripping legal thrillers have been translated into more than 20 languages and have sold nearly 20 million copies. “One L,” a national bestseller, gave a first-hand account of the emotional, physical and intellectual turmoil of being a first-year law student.
Turow is currently a partner in the Chicago office of Sonnenschein, Nath & Rosenthal, an international law firm, where his practice centers on white-collar criminal litigation and involves representation of individuals and companies in all phases of criminal matters.
The author received a B.A. degree from Amherst College, an M.A. degree from Stanford University, and a J.D. degree from Harvard Law School in 1978.
