THESE TWO PROGRAMS ARE FREE. EACH IS FREE BECAUSE IT IS SUBSTANTIALLY SHORTER THAN MY FEE BASED LAW PRODUCTS.
1) JFK Assassination: This is still the most hotly contested murder in America. Did Lee Harvey Oswald murder Kennedy or was he a patsy for others who did the murder? I have put together the most critical evidence in the case in a 32 page slideshow in powerpoint of multiple images and text. From this your students can enact a mock trial of Less Harvey Oswald. The primary evidence used by the defense is reasonable doubt but there is a lot of contrary evidence which can be thrown up that way to gain an acquittal. This is great fun for your classroom plus an excellent way of adhering to the rules of evidence and assembling a case. You can alternatively enlarge the scope of this project by letting your students obtain more evidence from the internet. There is a huge amount of evidence for both sides online.
2) This is a complete presentation on William Kennedy Smith & Florida Rape Trial & Acquittal. William Kennedy Smith made an excellent witness in his own defense during his rape trial. This makes it especially chilling to read the believable allegations by the three prior victims and their exclusion from evidence at trial plus allegations which occurred later made by two women in Chicago.
