Lady Arden

All the Law's a Stage! Shakespearean Insights and their Resonance Today

Mary Arden, Lady Arden of Heswall, is a UK Supreme Court Justice. She was the first female High Court judge assigned to the Chancery Division, and is also President of the Trinity Hall Law Society, Cambridge.

Lady Arden shows how Shakespeare dramatised legal and constitutional issues in four of his plays. She writes passionately on the uses of theatre and the richness of legal study.
