Event Details

In the wake of last year’s successful mock trial of Hamlet, the UCI School of Law and UCI Shakespeare Center will host a mock trial of Shylock from “The Merchant of Venice.” In Shakespeare’s controversial play, the Jewish moneylender takes the Christian merchant Antonio to court but is ruled against. In this staged appeal, L. Song Richardson, dean of UCI’s School of Law, will represent Shylock, and Erwin Chemerinsky, dean of UC Berkeley’s School of Law, will represent the State.
