In The Story of My Life Clarence Darrow recounts, and reflects on, his more than fifty years as a corporate, labor, and criminal lawyer, including the most celebrated and notorious cases of his day:-
- establishing the legal right of a union to strike in the Woodworkers' Conspiracy Case;
- exposing, on behalf of the United Mine Workers, the shocking conditions in the mines and the widespread use of child labor;
- defending Leopold and Loeb in the Chicago ""thrill"" murder case;
- defending a teacher's right to present the Darwinian theory of evolution in the famous Scopes trial;
- fighting racial hatred in the Sweet anti-Negro and the Scottsboro cases;
- and much more.
Written in his disarming, conversational style, and full of refreshingly relevant views on capital punishment, civil liberties, and the judicial system, Darrow's autobiography is a fitting final summation of a remarkable life.
