OPENING REMARKS AND Q&A MODERATED BY UNIVERSITY OF FLORIDA PRESIDENT KENT FUCHS

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 will present two talks by Cornell University Dean and American Studies Professor Glenn Altschuler, who will draw on his discussion of trials in a just-published book, Ten Great American Trials: Lessons in Advocacy.

At 6 p.m. in the Pugh Hall Ocora, Altschuler will present a talk entitled "The Future Belongs to Those Who Tell the Best Stories: Lessons in Trial Advocacy." The talk will draw 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. The event is free and open to the public. It will be streamed live at www.bobgrahamcenter.ufl.edu.

At 12 p.m. Friday, in the College of Law's Holland Room 180, Altschuler will examine the McMartin sexual abuse case--the longest and most expensive criminal trial in American history.
