Co-Sponsored by the History Theatre & the Ramsey County Bar Association
Courting Harry: The Supreme Court as Theater
Supreme Court proceedings are theater, but what can we learn about the law and the Supreme Court through theater? Using the History Theatre presentation of “Courting Harry,” this CLE examines the Supreme Court through the characters of Chief Justice Warren Burger and Justice Harry Blackmun who were St. Paul natives and friends. The CLE will focus on the role of personal relationships as affecting Supreme Court dynamics and it will also explore what we can learn about the law from the lives and personalities of the judges and justices who make up the courts.
Presenter: David Schultz is Hamline University in the School of Business and School of Law and an adjunct professor of law at the University of Minnesota. He is the author/editor of more than 25 books and 90 articles on various aspects of law. Professor Schultz frequently teaches a variety of CLEs, including leading law and literature discussions.
