On Friday and Saturday, the Law School will play host to a conference on "Shakespeare and the Law." According to the conference event listing, the event (organized by Chicago faculty Martha Nussbaum, Richard Posner, and Richard Strier,
The highlight of the conference for many, we suspect (including the Tribune's theater blog), will be watching special guest Justice Stephen Breyer perform as the ghost of Hamlet's father in a series of scenes from the Bard's plays that will be staged as part of the conference. Of course, the keynote conversation between Breyer, Nussbaum, Posner, and Strier will likely be just as fascinating.
The conference is free and open to the public. All the world's a stage, but the Weymouth Kirkland Auditorium isn't exactly the Globe, so space may be limited. The scenes and keynote will be made available on the web once they're ready.
If you attend and happen to be tweeting at the event, please use the hashtag #bardlaw.
