Lecture: Shakespeare & the Law: Philadelphia Free Library of Philadelphia
1901 Vine St., Philadelphia 19103

Join them for the next edition in our popular Shakespeare in the World Lecture Series with "Shakespeare and the Law" on Wednesday, March 20, 2019, led John Culhane, Distinguished Professor of Law at Delaware Law School (Widener University), and an adjunct professor at Drexel University.

It’s often said that people “bargain in the shadow of the law.” But they also write in that same legal shadow. Shakespeare’s plays are enriched by the legal culture in which they were created, but they question that culture as much as they reflect it. They talk about the famous trial in The Merchant of Venice, questions of justice and mercy in Measure for Measure, and issues of authority in King Lear and Julius Caesar.
