On Friday, Feb. 3, the University of Florida Office of the President, the Bob Graham Center for Public Service, and the Levin College of Law presented two talks by Cornell University Dean and American Studies Professor Glenn Altschuler, who drew on his discussion of trials in a just-published book, Ten Great American Trials: Lessons in Advocacy.

At the Bob Graham Center, Altschuler presented a talk entitled "The Future Belongs to Those Who Tell the Best Stories: Lessons in Trial Advocacy." The talk drew on four of the 10 trials discussed in the book representing the "most highly publicized, intriguing and legendary court battles of the 20th century," according to the American Bar Association, the book's publisher.
