Penny: A Documentary Film by Elizabeth Sher - January 28*
Wednesday, January 28, 4:30 p.m., USF School of Law, KN 100
*Screening and Q&A with Penny Cooper and filmmaker Elizabeth Sher to follow.
The life of Penny Cooper is undoubtedly courageous and ground-breaking as her cross-examination and negotiation skills on behalf of defendants have become legendary. As an LBGTQ activist, art collector and philanthropist, Penny Cooper’s career has been faced with many obstacles that she has conquered with poise and tact. In PENNY, she recalls her experiences as one of the few female students at Berkeley Law School (formerly Boalt Hall) in the 1960’s. Faced with an embedded sense of misogyny, Penny Cooper fought against misconceptions of the time to become a leading lawyer who personifies relentless advocacy, trenchant humor, sympathy, and a passion for the arts. With high profile trials include the Hells Angels and the “Cross Bow Murder” trial of Stockton businessman Michael Blatt, Penny Cooper has ascended to leading lawyer in Northern California and beyond.
