Christopher Darden, an accomplished attorney, best-selling author and law professor, has announced that he is a candidate for Los Angeles County Superior Court Judge.

Perhaps best known for serving as a prosecutor in the most watched trial in history, Darden has been a legal commentator, community leader and law professor and brings a unique skill set and unmatched experience to the bench.

Christopher Darden is most recognized for serving on the prosecutorial team of the O.J. Simpson trial, but he was already a seasoned deputy district attorney with 15 years of trial experience in the Los Angeles County DA’s office before that assignment.    As a member of the prosecution, Darden brought a critical missing piece – the importance of giving a voice to the victims and their family members, which he has continued as an advocate for victims.

A New York Times #1 best-selling author and a regular legal commentator on national news outlets, Darden’s campaign said that his “extraordinary courtroom experience representing both sides of the law, his work as a legal scholar and his deep commitment to justice for all, makes him an exceptional candidate for the bench.”
