    Premier Lab: Selecting a Jury for the Haymarket Affair with Bartlit Beck

    Thursday, Oct 19, 2017 3:00 - 5:00 PM @ Northwestern University Pritzker School of Law
    This event is over! Please check the 2021 schedule.
    PREMIER LAB - Reserved for Premier-level Members and Sponsors, Premier Labs bring together small groups for an exclusive, first-hand look into what happens behind the scenes at some of the most innovative companies, community leaders and institutions around Chicago.

    In 1886, a peaceful demonstration for labor rights that began in Chicago's Haymarket Square at the corner of Des Plaines and Randolph Streets ended violently with a bomb blast and gunfire, leaving dozen dead or injured. Allegations of communism, terrorism, police brutality and corruption followed. Step back in time with Bartlit Beck, one of the nation's most successful trial firms, to the legendary trial for those accused of leading the Haymarket riot. While “The Anarchists of Chicago” were convicted (many were sentenced to death), the legal proceedings were loudly criticized by figures like Clarence Darrow, George Bernard Shaw and Oscar Wilde. At this Premier Lab, some of the country’s leading trial lawyers and jury consultants from Salmons Consulting will reimagine the arguments and theories asserted by counsel in the Haymarket Affair, and attendees will participate in jury selection applying modern legal principles and methods in what promises to be an eye-opening look into the criminal justice system.

    *Must be 21 years or older to attend. Located in Parrillo Courtroom.
