Leopold and Loeb – The Trial of the Century

Leopold and Loeb – The Trial of the Century

On February 11, 2015, the Law Library, the Dan K. Webb Center for Advocacy, and the Center for Public Interest Law sponsored the enthralling dramatization of the Leopold and Loeb case's famous closing arguments by Clarence Darrow and Robert Crowe. In addition to this reenactment, thanks to the generous contribution of Professor Anita Weinberg, the library has also put on display several original documents and letters surrounding the case and Nathan Leopold's later life. Also highlighted are books from the library’s own collection about this "Trial of the Century." Be sure to come to the library to see these fascinating artifacts for yourself.  For those looking for additional information about the Leopold and Loeb case the Law Library has put together a special LibGuide of additional resources.
