One half of everyone's favourite legal team is set for a night at Cork Opera House this year.

Dean Strang rose to fame off the back of the hugely popular crime docuseries - Making a Murderer - released in late December 2015, detailing the recent life of Steven Avery.

Avery was arrested and served 19 years for a crime that he did not commit, and a number of years later he was incarcerated again and charged with the murder of Teresa Halbach.

Along with fellow lawyer Jerry Buting, Strang took on Avery's case and made a hugely compelling argument that he was set up by the authorities of Manitowoc County.

The case was watched by millions on the Netflix series and has gained both Strang and Buting a 'hero' status and following around the world.

The event, hosted by Old Oak in association with Aiken Promotion, will feature an evening of conversation with the Wisconsin lawyer who will discuss the 'systemic failures of the criminal justice system' as well as the broader implications of the Avery case.

The event will be hosted on September 22. Tickets on sale from 9am March 31 in Cork Opera House.
