Clarence Darrow is the most (in)famous lawyer in American history. He litigated many "Crimes of the Century." The course (which is intended for all interested adult learners) will focus on his life and times, as well as the Darrow mythology (often generated in movies, plays, novels and television dramas). The course will not only study Darrow but it will also afford important insights into the context of American social, economic, labor and cultural history in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
