Hath not a lawyer Bardic interests?

Well, most appellate lawyers do, and thus may be interested in an event noted in today's MetNews, Lawyers, Retired Jurist to Ponder Shakespearean Trial Scene:
Actor Richard Dreyfuss will present the ‘pound of flesh’ trial scene from William Shakespeare’s “The Merchant of Venice” on April 23 at 7 p.m. at Patriotic Hall, located at 2615 South Grand Avenue, Los Angeles, CA 90007. The event is co-sponsored by the Los Angeles Chapter of the Federal Bar Association and American Legion Post 8.
The post-reading discussion will feature retired U.S. District Judge A. Howard Matz; Rep. Adam Schiff, D-Burbank, who was a federal prosecutor before entering politics; Federal Public Defender Sean Kennedy, and Dr. Josh Holo, dean of Hebrew Union College. The panel discussion will be moderated by Dr. Susan Tiefenbrun of Thomas Jefferson School of Law.
