Glenn Altschuler, dean of the School of Continuing Education and Summer Sessions (SCE) and the Thomas and Dorothy Litwin Professor of American Studies, spoke at Cornell on July 5, 2017 as part of SCE's free summer events series. Altschuler is the author or coauthor of eleven books and more than a thousand essays and reviews. His latest book, co-authored with Faust Rossi, is Ten Great American Trials: Lessons in Advocacy. Drawing on four great court cases explored in that book—Leopold and Loeb, Alger Hiss, Dan White, and O.J. Simpson—Altschuler demonstrates the importance of storytelling to trial advocacy.
