Summary

"Client Stories: What I've Learned From the People I've Represented In My Over 40 Years as a Defense Attorney" featuring BU Law Professor David Rossman

Description


You might think that a lawyer-client relationship is mostly one way--the lawyer provides all the benefits and the client gives back very little (except for money in the case, rare in Professor Rossman's opinion, where you're privately retained). But lawyers don't have a monopoly on wisdom, and clients often have expertise in areas that lawyers never experience. Professor Rossman recently began thinking about the clients who have taught him things and touched him emotionally. They've shaped his career and given him a broader view of human nature, for better and for worse.

Professor Rossman teaches in BU Law's Criminal Clinical Program, and also teaches Criminal Procedure.
