Private Conversation Series

Join us for the next program in the Association’s “Private Conversation Series”

 

Accusations of Treason: Political Rhetoric or Matter of Law?

The treason trial of Aaron Burr was the greatest trial of the nineteenth century. As circuit judge, Chief Justice John Marshall presided over what he later called “the most unpleasant case which has ever been brought before a Judge in this or perhaps in any other country which affected to be governed by laws.” Burr’s treason trial tested our separation of powers, pushed legal professionalism to its limits, and set precedents that continue to guide our law today. Come join us to discuss one of the landmark cases in American law that took place right here in Richmond.
