Fall 2017: “Let’s Kill All The Lawyers”

“The first thing we do, let's kill all the lawyers” is one of the few memorable lines from Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 2, uttered by Dick the butcher, a character no one remembers. In this series, we won’t kill any lawyers, but we’ll meet a few of them who act as detectives in some highly regarded series.
