HATTS TrialThe School of Law’s Historical and Theatrical Trial Society presented “Salem Witch Trials: The Trial of the Accuser” in September, and the performance was recently featured in the Columbia Daily Tribune’s review of the fall 2014 theater season.

The trial focused on Thomas Putnam, who had a major role in leveling accusations against others during the Salem Witch Trials. Putnam, played by Professor Frank Bowman, was found not guilty during the mock trial.

The trial included 13 students and three professors from the School of Law. Professor Ben Trachtenberg and 3L Kristen Shively Johnson played the roles of Putnam’s defense counsel, and Professor Chuck Henson and 3L Andrew Crane played the roles of the prosecution. U.S. District Judge Nanette K. Laughrey, ’75, served as the judge for the mock trial.
