Trial of Hamlet

Trial of Hamlet

Did Othello, the Moor of Venice, kill his wife Desdemona in cold blood, or were there mitigating circumstances that led to his crime? Did Iago commit a hate crime against Othello when he turned the noble general against himself? Join us for this literary and legal adventure, featuring Erwin Chemerinsky (Dean, Bolt School of Law), Song Richardson (Interim Dean, UCI Law), and the Honorable Andrew Guilford, Distict Judge.

Directed by Eli Simon
