Jerome Buting, Illusion of Justice at ULC

Interweaving an insider’s account of the true crime saga driving Netflix sensation "Making a Murderer" with other controversial cases from his career, this powerful memoir from JEROME BUTING, Steven Avery’s defense attorney, reveals the flaws in America's criminal justice system and puts forth a provocative, persuasive call for reform.

In ILLUSION OF JUSTICE, Buting uses the Avery case as a springboard to examine the shaky integrity of our law enforcement and legal systems, which he has witnessed firsthand for nearly four decades. From his early career as a public defender to his success overturning wrongful convictions, his story provides a compelling insider’s view into the high-stakes world of criminal defense, and suggests that while in principle the law presumes innocence, in practice it more often than not presumes guilt.

Mr. Buting will be joined in conversation by Kevin Davis, an award-winning journalist, author and magazine writer based in Chicago. Davis' new book, THE BRAIN DEFENSE, will be available for purchase along with Buting's.

Call The Book Stall at 847-446-8880 to make reservations. The cost of the luncheon is $42. Dress code at the Union League Club is business casual, no denim please.
