To Kill a Mockingbird

what are the conflicts portrayed in the book as the trial unfolds and intensifies?

This is the beginning of the essay I have to write so I have to have a strong thesis statement with this as the beginning. There are several other parts with the next being discussing the relevance of the statements made in court, like: "there is one institution that makes a pauper the equal of a Rockefeller, the stupid man the equal of an Einstein...That institution is...the court"

I take it the conflicts are going to constitute the main part of your body?

I think one conflict that falls directly in line with your quote is the sanctity of the court as the last bastion of fairness in a racist community. Atticus believes fervently that the courts can transcend the ignorance of racism. Unfortunately the jury's bigotry was able to manipulate what Atticus felt was sacred.

The conflict of good vs evil- Tom vs Bob Ewell

THe ever present conflict of truth and lies.
