The 1894 court martial of French army Captain Alfred Dreyfus was the world’s first “trial of the century” – a media spectacle fueled by government misinformation and blatant anti-Semitism, all orchestrated in the name of national security. The case had a global impact, nearly destroying France’s reputation among civilized nations, sowing the seeds of future wars and even indirectly inspiring the birth of the modern Zionist movement.

In conjunction with a world-premiere exhibition “TRAITOR! Spies, Lies and Justice Denied: The Dreyfus Affair,” Cleveland-Marshall College of Law and the Maltz Museum of Jewish Heritage are co-hosting a panel of legal professionals to discuss the Dreyfus Affair trials, and their implications in the legal community to this day.
