You Be The Judge @ McGill Faculty Club
May 14 @ 7:30 pm

Me Goodwin will present the details from one of her cases along with the pertinent jurisprudence. Then the audience will be divided into groups (jury) whose task it will be to determine whether or not the protagonist is guilty. Once deliberations are completed, the foremen of each group will deliver their verdicts along with the reasons underlying their decisions.

Finally, Me Goodwin will announce the actual verdict in the case and explain the law as it applies to the matter at hand.
