Law suits up for birthday party

School of Law students rehearse a re-enactment of the second Dred Scott trial, part of the University’s 150th Birthday Party Sept. 14. Above, “attorney” Kevin Kuhlman (left) questions “slave owner” Chris Macchiaroli, while Michael Koby, J.D., associate director of legal research and writing and senior lecturer in law, fills in as the judge. Below, “bailiff” Michael Smith assists “wife of the slave owner” Kathy Reichbach with her costume. The re-enactment will be at 1 p.m. in Anheuser-Busch Hall, followed by an American Culture Studies in Arts & Sciences presentation on the St. Louis freedom suits at 2 p.m. The majority of the costumes for the production — directed by law school alumnus Judge David Mason — are courtesy of the Performing Arts Department in Arts & Sciences.
