FYSM 171: Trials of the Century (Falk)

Find a Trial

Screenshot of Famous Trials website


Use the resources linked below to locate a famous trial from the first half of the 20th century. The featured book, Great American Trials, is also a great resource for locating a trial. It is available as both an e-book and a print reference resource in the library. I would recommend starting with either the Famous Trials website or the Great American Trials book.

Suggested Trials


Note: The Nuremberg Trials is likely beyond the scope of your assignment. If you are considering this trial, then it is strongly recommended that you first speak with your professor. Also talk with your professor if you are considering using a trial from the latter half of the 20th century as you will likely have to do a comparative analysis between it and earlier trial from the 20th century.
