SHAKESPEARE AND THE LAW: A Primer by James Jager, Actor

Rate: 0 Flag

James Jager is a Shakespearean actor and teacher of acting and drama. He is also a consultant with the national general law practice firm of Charles Jerome Ware, P.A.: "Still working. Still committed. Still here to make a difference."

In his plays and other writings, Shakespeare mentions the law more than any other profession.

Although it is assumed by many that Shakespeare did not formally study law, it is clear from the many references in his works that the playwright possessed a significant general knowledge of legal terminology.

The legal jargon in Hamlet's speech in Act 5 is particularly impressive. Further, one play in particular, "Measure for Measure", contains the bulk of Shakespeare's writings on the law.

Keep the conversation going.
