Making A Murderer's Dean Strang is set to return to Ireland to discuss 'broader implications' of Steven Avery's case

Making a Murderer's defence lawyer Dean Strang will return to Ireland to give a public discussion on the systematic failures in the US criminal justice system and the broader implications of Steven Avery's case.
Mr Strang, along with Jerry Buting, worked on Steven Avery's defence during his trial for the murder of photographer Teresa Halbach in the Netflix docu-series Making A Murderer.
The series has been praised by viewers for highlighting the flaws in the American justice system and that's exactly what Mr Strang will discuss when he visits Galway's Black Box Theatre in September.
The lawyer, who is a member of the American Law Institute and serves on several charity boards, including the Wisconsin Innocence Project, will also discuss the far-reaching implications of Avery's case.
This will be Strang's second public appearance in Ireland after he was a guest on The Ray D’Arcy Show in January.
And while some 412,000 people tuned in to watch the exclusive interview, many were left disappointed with its general tone, and said it was a wasted opportunity to quiz the lawyer on his own personal feelings about the conviction or the finer details of the case.
Fans of the series hope that they will get more of an insight into the case when Mr Strang returns to Ireland.
A Conversation With Dean Strang takes place in the Black Box Theatre on Sunday September 24. This is a 'Róisín Dubh presents...' event.
Tickets are €35 and go on sale on Friday at 9am. Tickets are available through Róisín Dubh's website, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
