About This Event
Continuing our exploration of the ways in which Shakespeare portrayed aspects of professional life, Geoffrey Robertson QC talks about the law and lawyers, contending that Shakespeare must either have studied at the Inns of Court or was close friends with those who did.
The discussion is presented by Anne McElvoy who is a regular presenter of BBC Radio 3’s Arts and Ideas programme Free Thinking and a journalist who writes for the London Evening Standard and the Economist.
With readings from Bill Paterson
