 Scott Turow Biography

Uniting his passions for writing and law, Scott Turow is a best-selling author and attorney, considered by many to be the father of the modern legal thriller. He is the author of nine best-selling works of fiction, including his first novel, Presumed Innocent (1987), and its sequel, Innocent (2010). His works of nonfiction include One L, which chronicles his experience as a law student, and Ultimate Punishment, a reflection on the death penalty.

Turow has been a partner in the Chicago office of international firm SNR Denton since 1986, concentrating on white collar criminal defense while also devoting a substantial amount of time to pro bono matters. He has been active in a number of charitable causes promoting literacy, education, and legal rights and is an active member of Rock Bottom Remainders, a musical group of best-selling authors raising funds for various literacy charities, of which fellow band member Dave Barry said, "We play music about as well as Metallica writes novels."

An engaging speaker, Scott Turow discusses capital punishment as eloquently as the craft of writing. He explores popular images of lawyers, the power of attorneys in US society, and their ideals as reflected in contemporary culture and media.

Speaking Topics
  • A Novelist Goes to Hollywood

    A discussion of the rewards and perils when the movies buy your books. Six of my books have been purchased in Hollywood with one movie and two TV miniseries resulting. I recount the fun-interaction with stars and many good creative experiences-and the follies of Hollywood's complex business calculations, which sometimes make sense when you understand their perspectives.

  • How I Got To Be Two Things

    Humorous reflections on having two careers. Tracing my early ambition to be a novelist, my many early failures and how the great break of my literary career turned out to be my decision to go to law school, with the ensuing challenges of maintaining careers as both a writer and a lawyer.

  • Where Are You Perry Mason?

    A discussion of the popular image of lawyers, focusing on the dizzying ambivalence Americans feel about lawyers and tracing the reasons for both their liking and loathing: attorneys' power in American society, their perceived dark sides and their ideals as reflected in stories in books, movies and TV.

  • Confessions of a Death Penalty Agnostic

    Turow's keynote speech, Confessions of a Death Penalty Agnostic, provides a balanced discussion of a very volatile topic: capital punishment. As a prosecutor, Turow supported the death penalty reluctantly. However, his experiences as a defense lawyer and as a member of the Illinois Capital Punishment Commission made him realize that the important question about capital punishment is not whether it is moral, but whether it can work as a legal institution to give Americans what they want – justice.
