The Shakespeare Theatre Company will host its fourth Shakespeare and the Law Panel Discussion, Shakespeare and Corrupt Practices, sponsored by SCOTUSblog, on Tuesday, November 13.  The Bard Association, STC’s legal membership program, hosts Shakespeare and the Law discussions, which boast panels comprised of some of the most prominent legal and political minds in the country, converging to examine how Shakespeare’s texts reflect on prominent issues today. The panel discussion, titled “Corruption wins not more than honesty”: Shakespeare and Corrupt Practices, will be held at 6:30 p.m. at Sidney Harman Hall (610 F Street NW) with a reception following at 7:30 p.m.
