On October 3, 1995 — before reality television ruled the airwaves — people watched the guilty verdict of the OJ Simpson murder trial with all the enthusiasm of an American Idol finale. Like the singing contestants, the legal team also had to appear in front of judges and peers. This trial made them overnight celebrities. Marcia Clark, one of the Los Angeles District Attorneys who prosecuted Simpson during the highly publicized trial, became one of the most talked about names during the process.

An already high powered prosecutor, Marcia Clark began her legal career as a criminal defense attorney. Once she joined the prosecutor's office, she honed her courtroom skills and rhetorical talents. She soon amassed some impressive stats. With 19 successful homicide convictions already under her belt, she was hand picked to head the prosecution team. Their mission was to get a double murder conviction delivered on OJ Simpson. At the time, he was a beloved football icon.

This task proved much more difficult to handle than she and her team had anticipated. Clark squared off against Johnny Cochran and a mountain of legal talent on the defense side. F. Lee Bailey himself was one of the defense team's members. Throughout the trial, Ms. Clark continued to demonstrate her courtroom skills as a tenacious and highly prepared prosecutor. She also showed that she had the chops to handle and explain complex scientific evidence.
