The Law Library staged a mock appeal for the Shakespearean character, Shylock, from the play, The Merchant of Venice.  A full re-cap of the mock trial (including video!) is forthcoming, but we wanted to quickly share with you a scene from the event.

Gene Gulland, counsel for Antonio, stands at the lectern and listens to a question from the chief judge for the panel.  Teresa Miguel-Stearns represented Portia, and Michael Klotz represented Shylock.  The judges (L-R) were Micaela DelMonte, Richard Schneider, U.S. Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Connie Morella, and Suzanne Reynolds.
