    Robert Clifford and Sarah King Defend Socrates on PBS

    Watch Robert A. Clifford, founder and senior partner of Clifford Law Offices, re-try one of history’s most famous court cases: The People v. Socrates. The mock trial will air on Lakeshore PBS on May 10 and June 13 at 9 p.m. CST. Sarah F. King, partner at Clifford Law Offices, joins Clifford as they defend Socrates (portrayed by Hollywood actor and Second City alum John Kapelos) from charges of impiety and corrupting the youth of Athens.

    Set in a modern courtroom, the recreation features some of the top legal minds in Chicago and Illinois. Sponsored by the National Hellenic Museum, the mock trial took place in May 2023 as part of the museum’s Trial Series, highlighting the enduring relevance and value of Greek thought. Clifford Law Offices was a lead sponsor for the event

    Tune in to PBS on May 10 or June 13 to learn if Clifford and King succeed in acquitting Socrates, or if he will be convicted, as he was during his historic trial in 399 B.C. Spoiler alert: Clifford’s team wins, unlike what occurred centuries ago for Socrates.
