Our Cousins Down Under

 Posted on August 29, 2007 in Uncategorized

My dad, who resides at the moment in Melbourne, Australia, sent me this article from The Age newspaper about the legal team defending Peter Dupas, "one of Australia's most notorious killers."

I enjoy good newspaper profiles of American criminal-defense lawyers. It always seems to me that criminal-defense lawyers across the country are more alike, in ways that I consider important, than they are different; reading about the exploits of another defender feels a lot like getting a newsletter from some long-lost relative. I was pleased to read this article, and to find that defenders are, notwithstanding the wigs, much the same in Australia as here.
