Shakespeare & the Law: Julius Caesar

The Death of Julius Caesar - Vincenzo Camuccini

Julius Caesar is Shakespeare’s classic depiction of the abuse of power, political assassination and intrigue – a plot that would rival any episode of House of Cards or Scandal. The play offers a valuable and timeless springboard for a discussion of the use of executive power in 21st century America – and its future under a Clinton or Trump presidency.

The Shakespeare & the Law series features a staged reading of the abridged performed by prominent judges, attorneys, journalists, political strategists and scholars, followed by a panel discussion that explores the implications of the work in the era of Obama, Clinton and Trump. Presented in partnership with the Federalist Society, McCarter & English LLP, and Foley Hoag LLP. 

Participants include:

  • David J. Barron, United States Circuit Judge for the U.S. First Circuit Court of Appeals
