Students For Liberty is excited to announce Jerry Buting, the lawyer from Making a Murderer, will be speaking at LibertyCon! Our justice system should embody integrity and trust but instead, it oftentimes presumes guilt over innocence. Buting has worked more than 35 years as a criminal defense attorney and fights to expose failures of both law enforcement and the justice system.

Known for his appearance on the Netflix hit-series Making a Murderer, Buting earned his trustworthy reputation through his display of integrity as the defense attorney in the State v. Steven Avery murder trial of 2007. He uses his newfound fame as a platform to lecture the general public on the importance of a justice system that does not condemn based on an accusation.

“We can all say we will never commit a crime, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be accused. If that happens, you’ll understand the importance of the presumption of innocence.” - Jerome Buting

In his book Illusion of Justice: Inside Making a Murderer and America’s Broken System (Harper, 2017), Buting analyzes our criminal justice system and proposes ways that we can make a difference and impose change.

Buting is a practicing attorney at Buting, Williams & STilling S.C. where he exclusively focuses on criminal cases. Take a look at the video to see Buting’s take on New Evidence, Reddit Theories and What the Documentary Left Out.
