Movie Screening: 12:00 p.m.

What can lawyers learn from watching Marx Brothers movies? What can these brilliant purveyors of anarchy teach students of the rule of law?  On April 1, 2014, these questions and more will be considered at this first-ever symposium on the Marx Brothers and the Law.

Attendees will be treated to a screening of Horse Feathers (1932), which tells the story of Quincy Adams Wagstaff (Groucho), a new college president in a challenging environment.

The symposium is named in honor of Jerry Bepko, former IUPUI Chancellor, Dean of this law school, and noted Marx Brothers aficionado.
