Shakespeare you say? What does Shakespeare have to do with the law? Quite a bit as it turns out. In fact, scholars have debated for years whether or not he was a lawyer because his works deal so often with matters of law, justice, right, and wrong. One could learn a good deal about how to frame a case and make a good argument from Shakespeare. Whether you are a litigator or a business lawyer there is much to be learned from “the bard.”
