In 1998, Rob Bilott began a legal battle against DuPont that would consume the next twenty years of his life, uncovering the worst case of environmental contamination in modern history and a corporate cover-up that put the health of hundreds of thousands of people at risk. Representing a single farmer who was convinced the creek on his property had been poisoned by runoff from a nearby DuPont landfill, Rob ultimately discovers the truth about PFAS—unregulated, toxic chemicals used in the manufacturing of Teflon and a host of other household goods. DuPont’s own scientists had issued internal warnings for years about the harmful effects of PFAS on human health, but the company continued to allow these chemicals to leach into public drinking water. Until Rob forced them to face the consequences.May 5, 2022

The Top Shelf is a unique book club experience that will make you a better trial lawyer. We take amazing books that are fun to read, and we use them to identify the factors that influence key trial moments. You will see how amazing lawyers (both real and fictional) won cases. And it’s fun! Each session, we have a guest bartender teaching you how to make a new cocktail.
Trial School is limited to lawyers that represent people and families and do not represent any companies, corporations, or governmental entities or engage in any civil defense litigation. Find out how to join Trial School here.
