Event: Prof. Gershman as Clarence Darrow

On Friday, April 24, 2015 at 7:30 pm and on Saturday, April 25, 2015 at 2:00 pm, the Pace Law School community was in for a treat: Prof. Bennett Gershman delivered a fantastic performance as Clarence Darrow. He fearlessly tackled a one-man play¬†featuring “Darrow’s reminiscences about his career.” This play was created after Clarence Darrow’s death and originated on Broadway by Henry Fonda. Prof. Gershman encapsulated the very essence of Clarence Darrow, his work, his conviction and his legacy. He reminded us all about what law and law practice is all about. The event at Pace was greatly attended and all proceeds were donated to the Equal Justice Initiative.

Pace Law Library accompanied this great event by an exhibit dedicated to Clarence Darrow and his work. For those of you who missed it, the exhibit will stay on display it in the law library foyer. Come and check it out.
