Virtual Winter Mock Trial 2021

Tickets will go on sale in February. Check back for more information and additional participants to be announced soon.

All rise: virtual court is now in session! Join us this winter to hear an appellate argument before the Supreme Court of Sicily, based on a legal issue arising out of Shakespeare’s The Winter’s Tale. Heralded as “The funniest, most entertaining event in Washington,” by Roll Call magazine, the Mock Trial series features prominent law professionals as they explore the connection between classical theatre and modern-day law. Past participants include justices and judges from the United States Supreme Court, the Supreme Court of Canada, the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom, and the United States Court of Appeals to name a few.
