Greenspan - The Case for the Defense
My fascination with the Judicial System Structure of todays society was
furthered and strengthened after reading and analyzing the works of Edward
Greenspan. The superbly written biography recollecting past cases and important
events in Greenspan's life allowed myself, the reader, to learn more about
Jurisprudence and the Criminal Code. The entire casebook revolves around several
main themes including the balance of Positive and Natural influences in the
courtroom, whether a lawyer's conscience intervenes with his duty as a
counsellor, and the alarming rate of perjury occuring in front of the juries. To
be more concise and clear to the point, Greenspan's book is a diary of
controversial and beneficial issues which have hovered around our criminal
courts and will continue to plague and pester them for years to come. By
observing and understanding certain issues presented in this book, I was able to
comprehend what type of person Greenspan is, what he believes in, what he
represents and what he would do for his profession.
The wheels of jurisprudence are always turning, and I came to realise
how Greenspan worked and bargained for his status in the country to be solidifed.
this book also flourished with innovative situations pertaining to the most
diversified of criminal charges, to the most uncanny regions of law ever dealt.
It was this thorough look at Greenspan's life which impressed me the most. It
was quite clear that after the fourth page, I came upon the conclusion that this
casebook would create a most influential reaction to anyone who had displayed
any interest towards our Law system in general.
In Part One of the novel, No Little Clients, presents the reader with
the author's proposed thesis. His ambition is to defend innocent people accused
of crimes. Whether they are innocent or guilty without being proven guilty is
irrelevant to Mr. Greenspan. A lawyer's conscience must not be his deciding
factor when advising or counselling a client. This viewpoint is elaborated in
Part Two (Not Above The Fray) and explained frivolously by Greenspan himself.
Throughout the entire novel, the theme bends and curves itself around different
and unavoidable situations, but remains its original meaning that no one is
guilty until proven so. Greenspan refers to this phrase countless times and
explains to the reader that he will not allow his moral beliefs to conflict with
the path of justice (delicately and persuasively explained by both Greenspan and
the co-author, George Jonas in Parts Four, Five, and Six of the novel). Chapter
13, Playing God, emphatically displays Greenspan's concern with the treatment of
his clients and the decision to push the client until he can make a decision
that is in favour with the lawyer himself. the significance of this chapter is
that the reader detects the amount of responsibility and endurance is required
in order to become a successful pawn of the judicial system. At this point
Greenspan's thesis huddles itself around the principle of being a “Pawn of the
System” and only serving the system without prejudice and socialistic conflicts.
The authors begin their novel with several different themes which branch
out and eventually combine. Walking The High Wire is an excellent chapter which
focuses on the effects of intended falsehoods employed by the prosecution.

Two seemingly small digits may turn January 1, 2000 from a worldwide celebration into a universal nightmare. With computers mistaking the year 2000 for 1900, virtually all businesses that use dates will be affected. Not only will the companies be affected, but they are paying millions upon millions of dollars in order for computers to recognize the difference between the years 2000 and 1900.
