The Mulnomah Bar Association will be screening the film "Disturbing the Universe" as part of Community Law Week.

An annual celebration that works to engage communities and underserved people, this year's theme "The Legacy of John Adams, From Boston to Guantanamo, looks at the commitment to the rule of law.

The film documents the career of the late civil rights attorney William Kunstler (pictured at left in Attica Prison, AP Photo), once dubbed the "country's most controversial and … its best known" lawyer for defending the Chicago Seven in 1969-1970.

Kunstler also famously defended members of the Black Panther Party, the Catonsville Nine, the Weather Underground, the Attica Prison rioters and the American Indian Movement. He was a board member of the American Civil Liberties Union and co-founded the Law Center for Constitutional Rights.
