Writers Bloc and the Beverly Hills Bar Association* present Preet Bharara, former US Attorney for the Southern District of New York

How do we achieve truth and justice in the courts and in our daily lives? How can we exercise our better and best judgment?

Shortly after his inauguration in 2017, President Trump fired Preet Bharara, former United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, after Bharara refused former Attorney Jeff Sessions’ request that he and 45 other US Attorneys resign. Bharara was widely known as one of the most aggressive prosecutors in the country, going after public corruption, terrorism, drug lords, financial industry crimes, organized crime and more. He was also party-blind in his prosecutions: once Chief Legal Counsel to Senator Chuck Schumer, Bharara played no political favorites; he dogged Governor Andrew Cuomo’s office and Mayor Bill de Blasio’s office for financial improprieties. Bharara’s new book, Doing Justice, examines our legal system through case histories and personal stories, how and why it really works, and asks critical ethical questions in prosecuting crimes and in dealing with daily life. Preet Bharara’s podcast, Stay Tuned with Preet, is hugely popular, attracting hundreds of thousands of listeners per episode.

In conversation with Jeffrey Toobin.  Jeffrey Toobin is a legal analyst for CNN, and writes on law for The New Yorker.  He is a bestselling author, most recently of American Heiress: The Wild Saga of the Kidnapping, Crimes and Trial of Patty Hearst.  Previous books include The Run of His Life: The People v. O.J. Simpson; and The Nine: Inside the Secret World of the Supreme Court.
