Add to Wish List
Robert S. Bennett has been a lawyer for more than forty
years. In that time, he’s taken on dozens of high-proﬁle and
groundbreaking cases and emerged as the go-to guy for the
nation’s elite. Bob Bennett gained international recognition
as one of America’s best lawyers for leading the defense of
President Bill Clinton in the Paula Jones case. But long
before, and ever since, representing a sitting president, he
has fought for justice for many famous (and some now
infamous) clients. This is his story.
Born in Brooklyn and an amateur boxer in his youth, Bennett
has always brought his street ﬁghter’s mentality to the
courtroom. His case history is a who’s who of ﬁgures who
have dominated legal headlines: super lobbyist Tommy
Corcoran, former Secretaries of Defense Clark Clifford and
Caspar Weinberger, Marge Schott, and, most recently, New
York Times reporter Judith Miller and former World Bank
president Paul Wolfowitz. Bennett also served as special
counsel to the Senate during the ABSCAM and Keating Five
scandals and was a leading member of the National Review
Board for the Protection of Children & Young People, created
by the United States Conference of Catholic Bishops in
response to the sex abuse allegations.
Taking the reader deep within his most intriguing and
difﬁcult cases, In the Ring shows how Bennett has argued for
what’s right, won for his clients, and effected his share of
change on the system. This is an intimate and compelling
memoir of one lawyer’s attempt to ﬁght hard and fair.
