LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) -

The Texas Tech University School of Law welcomed guest lecturer Dean Strang, co-counsel to Netflix series a "Making a Murderer" subject Steven Avery.

Dean Strang, a practicing lawyer in Madison, Wisconsin, who was the state's first federal defender and has argued in front of the United States Supreme Court, delivered a guest lecture at the Texas Tech School of Law.

Strang has served as co-counsel to Steven Avery, a Wisconsin man who was convicted of rape and attempted murder in 1985 before being exonerated by DNA testing in 2003. Avery, who filed a $36 million lawsuit against the Wisconsin authorities who arrested and tried him, was later convicted of the murder of a Wisconsin photographer in 2005. 

Avery's 2007 murder trial and the issues surrounding it were the focus of the 10-episode Netflix original series "Making a Murderer," which was released in 2015. The issues explored in the series include allegations of misconduct by police and prosecutors, tampering with evidence and coercion of witnesses.

Strang also is an adjunct professor at both the University of Wisconsin Law School and the Marquette University Law School. He also is a lecturer in legal history for the University of Wisconsin Division of Continuing Studies.

He is an author of numerous law reviews, and his second book on the mass trial of Industrial Workers of the World (IWW) members in federal court in 1918 is due out in 2018.
