Berkeley School of Law dean weighs in on impact of OJ trial 30 years later

View descriptionShare


As we've been reporting throughout the day, OJ Simpson has passed away of Cancer at the age of 76.

Once celebrated as a football player and later revered as a commentator in the NFL, his notable accomplishments on the gridiron were overshadowed by the high-profile murder trial of Nicole Brown Simpson and her friend Ronald Goldman. 

The bloody stabbing deaths of Simpson's ex-wife Nicole and Goldman rocked Los Angeles. Later, when Simpson faced trial--KNX, which is an all-news station--broke format to broadcast the trial live, aided by experts in the law, relying on a USC law professor, Erwin Chemerinsky, who's now the dean of the UC Berkeley School of Law.  He is gracious enough to join us on-air once again nearly 30 years later to talk about the impact of the trial on the legal world, the media landscape and society itself.
