Prof. Doug Linder's Famous Trials
This site packs solid famous trials material fit for an encyclodedia. It discusses at least 24 famous trials including the Amistad trials, the OJ Simpson Trial, the three trials of Oscar Wilde and the Scopes "Monkey" Trial among others. The Amistad trial discussion alone is a great companion to the 1997 Steven Spielberg film. Prof. Doug Linder, a law professor from the University of Misouri Kansis City Law School, packs the site with pictures, stenographic notes, decisions, short biographies of the personalities involved, and the really engaging opening and closing arguments. I found myself going back to this site over and over again and until now I haven't finished it because Prof. Doug LInder continues to update with new famous trials write ups. A must read for any legal eagle.
