An Insider's View of Watergate

Barry Schochet, JD

In 1972 Senator Sam Ervin invited Barry Schochet to work as staff counsel on what would become the Senate Watergate Committee. For over a year he was part of the team that put together the committee hearings in the summer of 1973, selecting and interviewing witnesses, including Robert Haldeman, John Ehrlichman, John Dean, and Alexander Butterfield. After the hearings he participated in preparing a report that detailed the “dirty tricks” of the 1972 campaign and summarized the events surrounding the Watergate break-in and subsequent cover-up. In this lecture, Scochet will provide an insider’s perspective on the Watergate scandal.

Instructor: Barry Schochet earned his law degree from Emory University School of Law. In addition to serving on the Senate Watergate Committee, he served as Staff Director for the Senate Committee on Foreign Relations, Subcommittee on Near Eastern and South Asian Affairs. He is currently a partner in Volt Energy and serves on the UCSD Chancellor's Associates Council.
