Law Centennial Kickoff: Featuring Scott Turow
September 20, 2012 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm| Free
Gonzaga University School of Law is proud to invite acclaimed author Scott Turow to campus to kickoff its Centennial year celebration. In addition to penning best sellers such as Presumed Innocent, Turow continues to work as an attorney and is involved with a number of charitable causes, including organizations that promote literacy, education, and legal rights.
Turow’s lecture is titled, “Where Are You Perry Mason?” He will discuss the popular image of lawyers, focusing on the dizzying ambivalence Americans feel about lawyers and tracing the reasons for both their liking and loathing: attorneys’ power in American society, their perceived dark sides and their ideals as reflected in stories in books, movies and TV.
This is sure to be a sold-out event, so RSVP early to guarantee your spot. Following the lecture will be a book signing and reception with Scott Turow. We will also be selling our newly released Law Centennial book – Celebrating Gonzaga School of Law: The First 100 Years.
