Witness Lab Simulation: Salem Witch Trials with Professor Leonard Niehoff's U-M Law Seminar

This class interaction with the Witness Lab project is open to the public for observation. Seating is limited. 

In her investigation of our legal system, McClellan’s practice engages K-12 and university classes across a spectrum of disciplines including law, drama, anthropology, and more. Visit our website for an ever-evolving list of opportunities to see the Witness Lab project in action. 

Professor Len Niehoff will lead a U-M Law School seminar discussion of the Salem Witch Trials with twelve students before a public audience. The March 11 session will focus on the history of the trials and the legal issues they raise. The March 18 session will include live performances of actual parts of the trials, along with conversation about the lessons they convey. Professor Niehoff has a forthcoming article on the witch trials and is working on a book about them as well. ​Come get a glimpse into both a law school classroom and a 1692 colonial witch trial!

Witness Lab is presented in partnership with the Roman J. Witt Artist in Residence Program of the Penny W. Stamps School of Art & Design, with lead support provided by the University of Michigan Law School and Office of the Provost.
