Shakespeare and the Law

Spring 2019

Our next presentation of Shakespeare and the Law will be in the Spring of 2019.

Presented in partnership with the Boston Lawyers Chapter of the Federalist Society and McCarter & English. Shakespeare and the Law features staged readings of scenes from several of Shakespeare’s greatest plays, all centering on a currently relevant theme. The scenes are performed by local, state and national lawyers and judges alongside CSC’s professional actors. Performances are interspersed with panel discussions by the participants about legal and political topics highlighted in the selected scenes featuring diverse perspectives from across the political spectrum.  Past presentations have included work from Measure for Measure, Richard III, Othello, The Merchant of Venice and Henry V.
