    The popularity of the FX miniseries The People v. OJ Simpson, NPR’s Serial podcast, and the Netflix docuseries Making a Murderer, are just a few examples of a growing recent trend that places law at the center of popular culture. This panel will explore the phenomenon and provide insights into how law school communications professionals and faculty members can leverage the rise of law in film, TV, radio, podcasts and other media. Featured panelists will include Dean Strang, defense attorney for Steven Avery in the Netflix documentary series Making a Murderer, and Stanford/UCLA law professor Michael Asimow, author of Law and Popular Culture: A Coursebook.
