Spring 1988 American University Law Review: Shakespeare Authorship Moot Court Briefs and Essays

A few days ago I posted a link to the 1987 American University Moot Court video (see below).  In case you’d like to read the briefs and related essays, here’s a link to the Spring 1988 issue (Volume 37) of The American University Law Review.  The briefs present the case for and against the orthodox “Stratfordian” authorship theory, and the case for and against the so-called “Oxfordian” theory.  Click on this link www.wcl.american.edu/journal/lawrev/37/37-3.cfm

Once again, here’s the link to the video of the November 25, 1987, moot court held at American University.    Here’s the description on the website:

“Three U.S. Supreme Court Justices heard a moot court debate over the authorship of Shakespeare’s plays. The mock trial was organized to explore the theory that Edward De Vere, the 17th Earl of Oxford, was the actual author of the plays, writing under the pseudonym of Shakespeare.”  Click here for the video:  http://www.c-spanvideo.org/program/618-1
