At previous State Bar of Arizona appearances, Clay Jenkinson’s portrayal of Theodore Roosevelt produced an audience buzzing with excitement, energized, even awed.
At this three-hour ethics program, Clay will again present a historically accurate first-person characterization of Roosevelt. Based on his knowledge of Roosevelt’s character, he’ll compare the ethical issues lawyers face today with those faced 100 years ago, and extrapolate the ideals Roosevelt would have us strive toward.
Clay S. Jenkinson is a humanities scholar, author and social commentator who routinely addresses U.S. Supreme Court justices, state and national legislators, school children, college audiences and professional organizations. He has appeared at numerous seminars for the State Bar of Arizona. He has portrayed Thomas Jefferson, Theodore Roosevelt, Meriwether Lewis and J. Robert Oppenheimer, all to rave reviews. He is perhaps best known for his award-winning portrayal of Jefferson, to which he brings a humanities perspective – partly learned as a Rhodes scholar at Oxford University – to everything he does.
