Witness Lab Simulation: Romeo vs. the City of Verona with Katie McBride's Greenhills Middle School Class

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. 

Greenhills Middle School students will speculate about a trial that never happened. Riffing on Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, students will put Romeo on trial. You decide: Is Romeo responsible for Tybalt’s death?

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.
