`As part of our law school centennial celebration we have arranged a truly special event. In recreating the atmosphere of 1911, the year the law school was founded, we decided to reenact the trial of Clarence Darrow for bribing jurors in Los Angeles. Darrow was actually put on trial twice, with one acquittal and one hung jury, but the verdict of historians is still divided. We have lined up an all-star cast for the re-enactment. Darrow himself will be portrayed by U.S. District Judge Charles Breyer. His defense lawyer will be nationally known law professor and defense attorney Michael Tigar. The prosecutor will be Senior Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit Stephen Trott of Boise, Idaho. Chief Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the 9th Circuit Alex Kozinski will preside. The chief witness against Darrow will be portrayed by law school dean, Donald Polden.
