Student Organization Headlines

Week of September 5, 2005

Student Bar Association

An invitation to see the theatrical stage production, Pleading for the Future, at Chicago-Kent.

Thursday, September 8, 5:00 - 6:00 p.m. at the Ogilvy Auditorium at Chicago-Kent.

Chicago-Kent's own adjunct Professor Todd Parkhurst plays Clarence Darrow, one of Chicago's most renowned lawyers.

In 1924, Nathan Leopold and Richard Loeb, two wealthy Chicago 18-year-olds, killed 11-year-old Bobby Franks, just for the experience of doing so. At the time, this case was far more lengendary than the O.J. Simpson case. Darrow argued the case for two days and obtained life sentences for the boys, avoiding the state's strenuous efforts to hang them. The argument is among the most famous in legal history.

Professor Parkhurst will deliver a condensed 25-minute version of Darrow's closing argument and summation.

The show includes an actual detective, a corpse, the defendants, an actual state's attorney (played by Scott W. Petersen '72), a court clerk, an assistant detective (played by Naser Baseer '03), and a newspaper reporter (played by adjunct Professor Bill Hannay).

The show also includes a PowerPoint presentation of crime scene photographs and music from the 1920's.

The show is sponsored Holland & Knight LLP and the Student Bar Association.

Any Questions: Please e-mail Jason Gordon or Professor Mickie Piatt.
