Making a Murderer lawyer shares secrets with UQ students

13 October 2017

Upon its release in December 2015, the Netflix true crime docuseries Making a Murderer enthralled millions of viewers worldwide.

Filmed over 10 years, the series followed Steven Avery, a Wisconsin, US man who was accused and ultimately convicted of murder shortly after his release from an 18-year prison sentence for a crime he did not commit.

More than 100 students from The University of Queensland’s TC Beirne School of Law had the rare opportunity to hear from one of the series’ most popular figures, Mr Avery’s former defence lawyer Dean Strang, at a student-led Q&A panel last week.
