The Netflix series, Making a Murderer, has stimulated a wide-ranging national and even international conversation about the criminal process in the United States. It raises questions about the presumption of innocence, the rightful conduct of the police, prosecutors and defense attorneys, and the possibilities of wrongful convictions. The series also raises questions about the ethics of documentary film-making.

This panel discussion will address these and related questions, in an attempt to understand the wider lessons that Making a Murderer might teach us. Please note: There will be spoilers!!
