Brown Bag Lunch Series - Dissecting Making a Murderer

Join Kelle Andrews, staff attorney to Judge Kim Brown and Christopher Shook, staff attorney to Judge Chris Brown to discuss Netflix's breakout series Making a Murderer.

Are Steven Avery and Brendan Dassey guilty of murdering Theresa Halbach? Were the Manitowoc County Prosecutor and Sheriff's Office corrupt? What additional evidence was missing from the documentary? What is reasonable doubt?  What is the presumption of innocence? How reliable is scientific evidence?

Binge-watch the ten episode series this weekend and then bring your brown bag lunch and spend an hour debating the merits of the documentary with your colleagues.
