Dean Strang and Jerry Buting, defence attorneys for Steven Avery in the Netflix documentary series, Making A Murderer, have announced an Australian speaking tour in November.

Cult Netflix hit, Making a Murderer, has captivated television audiences around the world and has already been hailed as one of the most important documentary series ever made.

Two of the most compelling figures from the series, Strang and Buting’s multi-city speaking tour commences Tuesday, November 1 at the Perth Concert Hall. A Conversation on Making A Murderer with Attorneys Dean Strang & Jerry Buting will then travel to Sydney, Adelaide, Brisbane and Melbourne.

The tour, which will involve the two attorneys in conversation about the Steven Avery case and its broader implications, will also feature the pair in a moderated discussion regarding the systematic failures of the criminal justice system. This will include a Q&A giving the audience a unique opportunity to address questions with both Strang and Buting.

Never has criminal justice—with its horrifying inequalities and travesties of fairness—been a hotter topic. The likes of gripping TV documentaries Making a Murderer, The Jinx, the podcast Serial and the latest re-examination of the OJ Simpson trial have made the US justice system a water cooler topic. A Conversation on Making a Murderer will allow audiences to have that water cooler conversation with two of the most pivotal people in this most compelling and controversial case.
