Simpson in 1994-95; his account of the trial was published as Lessons From the Trial in 1996. Uelmen has argued several cases before the U.S. Supreme Court and California Supreme Court, serving as pro bono counsel for patients asserting the right to use medical marijuana. Professor Uelmen is currently the Director of the Edwin A.

Uelmen has also served in the U.S. Attorney’s Office in Los Angeles, prosecuting organized crime cases.
