Please join us for a special evening with CBA President, Judge Nathaniel Baca, followed by Judge Sanford “Sandy” Brook to present vignettes from a one-act play about Clarence Darrow.
At this event, Judge Brook’s brings to life the emotion, oratory skill, and courtroom drama of an extraordinary man, Clarence Darrow, who exposed inequality and injustice by taking on society’s most controversial causes. Darrow’s work in the courtroom impacted the social, political and cultural fabric of the early part of the 20th century. Fighting for labor reform, racial equality, the teaching of evolution in our public schools and challenging the death penalty were the hallmarks of a brilliant legal career.
The ethics and professionalism aspects of some of the greats of all arguments will be examined and explored. An entertaining event for everyone so be sure to bring a guest to this fascinating one-act show!
