Making a Murderer

Dean Strang in conversation with Paul Barclay

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and UQ Law

Cult Netflix hit, Making a Murderer has captivated television audiences around the world and has already been hailed as one of the most important documentary series ever made. 

Dean Strang, one of the most compelling figures from the series will share the successes and challenges of the Steven Avery case and its broader implications, along with the systemic failures of the criminal justice system.

At a time when we are gripped by pressing questions about the fairness and effectiveness of criminal justice systems aroud the world, concerns that have been highlighted by true crime narratives from Making A Murderer, Serial, and The Jinx to the murder trial of O.J. Simpson, Strang will explore and discuss the US process of justice today and throughout history. Join Dean Strang live for your opportunity to be in the room with one of the most pivotal people in this most compelling and controversial case.

A Q&A with the audience follows the discussion.
