HLS 200Harvard Law School in the Arts

The HLS Bicentennial celebration will extend over the 2017-2018 academic year and will kick off in September with a festival that celebrates HLS in the Arts from a variety of perspectives. The festival will take place on September 15-16, 2017 across the HLS campus. This event will showcase the extraordinary achievements of HLS alumni in the arts, including visual arts, music, literature, theater, television, dance, and film, as well as the multitude of artistic talents of current HLS students, staff, and faculty. Many of those alumni, who have won Pulitzer Prizes, Academy Awards, Tony Awards, and Emmys, as writers, lyricists, directors, producers, and actors, will come to campus to join in the celebration. The festival will also highlight the role that HLS has played as an institution in film, literature, and theater, and will showcase the greatest hits from the Law School Parody over the past fifty plus years.
