Making a Murderer lawyer Jerry Buting is coming to Belfast

By Lesley Houston

Northern Ireland's young lawyers are getting the chance to hear a first-hand account of one of America's most notorious murder cases.

Now a Netflix documentary hit, Making a Murderer is addictive viewing for millions around the world.

Jerry Buting, one of the defence attorneys in the case of Steven Avery - a Wisconsin man cleared of rape after serving 18 years in jail, only to be convicted for murder on seemingly trumped up charges just four years later - will be the guest speaker at a major legal conference coming to Northern Ireland.

Solicitors and barristers from around Europe will also attend the conference where they will address Northern Ireland's position as "a hotbed of investment" according to hosts, the Northern Ireland Young Solicitors Association (NIYSA).

Invest NI and representatives from international law firms will complement the list of speakers.

The European Young Bar Association Spring Conference will take place at Belfast's Ten Square next month.
