The event continues Fordham Law series of forums with leaders of art and culture

Fordham Law School's Forum on Law, Culture, & Society is pleased to announce that bestselling novelist Scott Turow will speak about his new book, Limitations, and his role as a novelist and practicing lawyer, at One Time Warner Center on December 5.  The book, scheduled for release on November 14, was serialized throughout the spring and summer in The New York Times Magazine. Attendance is free.

Turow, the author of legal thrillers such as Presumed Innocent, a New York Times #1 bestseller that was made into a movie starring Harrison Ford, is a former Assistant U.S. Attorney and remains a practicing lawyer. Clips from Presumed Innocent will be shown. Novelist and Fordham Law School professor Thane Rosenbaum, the director of the Forum on Law, Culture, & Society, will serve as moderator.

The event is part of Fordham Law School's ongoing public Forum on Law, Culture, & Society, a series of discussions about the law's impact on the artistic imagination and the way it influences the broader culture. Previous speakers included E.L. Doctorow, Tony Kushner, Sidney Lumet, Tom Fontana, and Christopher Buckley. Last month the Forum on Law, Culture, & Society sponsored the first annual Fordham Law Film Festival.
