native talks: 'Making a Murderer's' Jerry Buting - Live Q&A: UEA on Friday 31st January 2020
Jerry Buting, defense attorney for the murder conviction case of Steven Avery - now known worldwide as the real-life protagonist of Netflix cult series hit “Making a Murderer”, will be heading to university campuses up and down the country for an exclusive Q&A event.
The popular Netflix series has made a huge impact on television audiences worldwide, igniting political debate and bringing the U.S criminal justice system to the forefront of conversation across an enormous and varied spectrum of viewers. It has rapidly become one of the most important TV series of our time.
The conversation will involve moderated discussion of the Steven Avery case along with its broader implications and comments on the systematic failures of the criminal justice system.
This is your opportunity to see clips from the case that were never aired and ask questions to one of the most prominent figures in the modern American legal system.
With over 35 years of experience in criminal defence law, Jerry Buting has not only gained worldwide recognition for his role in the Steven Avery case but has been an outspoken voice for criminal justice reform including problems of mass incarceration, a flawed jury system, unreliable forensic science and police and prosecutor bias or misconduct.
