Tulane alumnus, Ira Lee Sorkin, best known for representing Bernie Madoff, will speak at Tulane Law School on Monday, October 15, about his experience with the Madoff trial and how the intense media glare and political visibility of the case complicates representation of a client.

He is widely recognized as one of nation’s premier lawyers and is listed as one of America’s Leading Lawyers for Business by Chambers US, as a Super Lawyer, and as one of the Best Lawyers in American (in three different categories).
Mr. Sorkin will speak from 4:30-5:30 p.m. in Room 110 of Weinmann Hall on the Tulane campus. A reception will follow. The event is open to all members of the Tulane community.
