Forty years ago, Watergate changed the world we live in. Time, distance, and new information about this historic event have prompted John Dean, former counsel to President Nixon, to share his story.

John and presidential historian Jim Robenalt will present an insider’s view of this important chapter in American history. This program takes participants from the slide into conspiracy and obstruction of justice to John’s “cancer on the presidency” talk with President Nixon, which was recorded in the Oval Office on March 21, 1973. Using this recording and John’s experience as a case study, this seminar explores the ethical duties of an attorney who becomes entangled in client wrongdoing, whether deliberately or unwittingly.

Join us for the 40th anniversary of President Nixon’s “Saturday Night Massacre” for a riveting presentation, followed by a unique opportunity to participate in a Q&A and networking reception with John, Jim, and Mintz Levin’s own Bill Weld, who played an integral role in the Watergate impeachment inquiry.
