Defending Democracy Ellen: That doesn’t sound good. Still frustrated Tom: I was assigned a new case today. One I hoped I wouldn’t get. Sympathetically Ellen: What is it about? With sadness in his eyes Tom: My client is accused of harming someone in ways I’d rather not discuss. Ellen: Ok, I’m sorry. Ellen glances back at Tom Ellen: You’ve had cases like this before. What is making this one so tough on you? Tom: I think my client is guilty. I can see it in his eyes. His side of the story doesn’t make sense and all the facts point straight to him. I think he is a monster and I know that I personally would feel better if he was off the streets. Ellen: Is he really that bad? Tom: Worse. Ellen: So why defend him then? If you know already he is guilty. Can you have the case assigned to someone else?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
