The University of Baltimore School of Law drew a standing-room-only crowd on Feb. 12 for “Serial: The Presumption of Guilt.” A panel that included friends and former attorneys for Adnan Syed, who was convicted in the 1999 murder of a former girlfriend, examined the Baltimore County case that was the subject of the hit podcast. (It has been downloaded nearly 70 million times.)
Organized by the UB Student Bar Association, the nighttime event featured a who’s who of people involved in the case, including:
Justin Brown, Adnan Syed’s attorney
Saad Chaudry, Adnan Syed’s best friend
Rabia Chaudry, Saad’s sister, a lawyer who brought Adnan Syed’s story to Serial host Sarah Koenig’s attention
Douglas Colbert and Chris Flohr, lawyers who represented Syed during the investigation and trial
Susan Simpson, a lawyer in Washington, D.C.
“Serial: The Presumption of Guilt” was covered by several TV stations, including Baltimore’s ABC affiliate, which recorded the nearly two-hour event. Click here to see the coverage.
