Each week we will explore a poem in depth, then use that discussion as a springboard for introducing a legal issue related to the poem. Each week’s theme will differ, some being of general application (5th Amendment privilege against self-incrimination), some pertaining to current events (cougar hunting in Idaho, the Mirkarimi trial).
No prior knowledge of poetry or the law required.
I have been a criminal defense attorney in San Francisco for 23 years, in both public and private practice. Currently I manage the Felony Unit of the Public Defender’s Office. I was an English major in college, with an emphasis on poetry.
