The Trajectory of Justice: Fall 2012 UCSC

In the spring of 2012, Daniel Sheehan taught a class at UCSC outlining the major cases he has had a hand in over the last four decades.  Titled "The Trajectory of Justice," the class starts with Sheehan's Harvard Law School days and works on through the Pentagon Papers, the Karen Silkwood case, and the Iran Contra scandal,  to name a few.  Many of the stories told in the class are also told in Sheehan's first book, which can be purchased here.
