Witness Lab: Salem Witch Trials with Professor Leonard Niehoff's U-M Law Seminar

The public is invited to observe this U-M class interaction with the Witness Lab project. Seating is limited.

Professor Leonard M. Niehoff will lead a U-M Law seminar discussion on the Salem Witch Trials. Using Arthur Miller’s The Crucible as source material, aspects of the Witch Trials will be performed in order for students to consider colonial American law. The course addresses the research for Professor Niehoff’s forthcoming book about the Salem Witch Trials.

Witness Lab is presented in partnership with the Roman J. Witt Artist in Residence Program of the Stamps School of Art & Design, with lead support provided by the University of Michigan Law School and Office of the Provost.
