Theater of Justice

Law students are turning life into art at the University of Maryland School of Law.They are using the real life trial and subsequent appeal of Michael Austin as the basis for a play, (IN)JUSTICE for Michael Austin, and will perform it on April 23 at the law school. Mr. Austin, convicted and sentenced to life in prison for murder and armed robbery in 1975, but released in 2001 and pardoned in 2003, will appear in the play. More here in an article by Karen Sloan of the National Law Journal. More here and here about Mr. Austin's release and pardon.
