Shakespeare and the Law


A scene from last weekend's Shakespeare and the Law conference at the University of Chicago Law School. In addition to the presentation of academic papers, there was also some acting--in this scene, Judge Posner, playing Polonius, is lying dead off to the left. Martha Nussbaum, playing the queen, is standing next to a student playing Hamlet, and Supreme Court Justice Breyer, who is playing the king's ghost.

Is that Martha in a mini-skirt and high heels?? WTF?

Yes, it is. She's playing Hamlet's mother.
