Assembly Series: Dean Strang “Considering Systemic Injustice in Light of ‘Making a Murderer’: The Need for Criminal Justice Reforms in America”

  • Monday, September 19, 2016 • 5:00 pm
  • Graham Chapel, Washington University in St. Louis

Why You Should Listen:

“Part of the reason for having a strong defense team is to make sure that prosecutors and police follow the rules and don’t cut corners, and that’s something that goes beyond any individual case to benefit the system as a whole.”

An abiding commitment in ensuring that justice remains part of the criminal justice system is what drove Wisconsin attorney Dean Strang to take Steven Avery’s case, which we watched play out in the compelling 10-part series, “Making a Murderer” and made Strang into an overnight celebrity.

Assemble. Listen. Learn. 

The Assembly Series, Washington University’s signature lecture series, enjoys a long and rich tradition. For most of its 62-year history, its programs were held Wednesdays at 11 a.m. in Graham Chapel, and no classes were scheduled so the entire campus community could assemble.

Assembly Series programs are always free and open to the public, although some programs may have limited seating. Please check this site for new information or changes in the schedule, and subscribe to receive announcements.
