Tuesday, October 20, 2020
3:00 PM – 4:30 PM

The Chicago 7 Trial was one of the most famous, and infamous, trials ever to take place in a Chicago courtroom.  Now, 50 years after the verdict, and days after the release of a new blockbuster film on Netflix, the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of Illinois, the Federal Bar Association -Chicago Chapter, and the Seventh Circuit Bar Association are proud to present a conversation with the last living member of either trial team –  former Assistant United States Attorney Dick Schultz.

U.S. District Judge Thomas Durkin and U.S. Magistrate Judge Jeffrey Cole interview Mr. Schultz as he takes us through all of the hard-to-believe moments of one of the most talked about trials in American history.
