Socrates to be retried - at last!

       If you missed the first trial, don't worry.  There is still time to sign up for the retrial. 

     On Thursday, January 31, 2013, at 6:00 p.m. the National Hellenic Museum will present the "Trial of Socrates", billed as the "most significant legal appeal in nearly 2500 years."  A posting in the ABA journal, Law News Now,  provides further information on the retrial.  For those interested in "famous trials" the ABA posting provides links both  to a University of Missouri-Kansas City Law School website dedicated to the subject and a Time Magazine list of the "Top Ten Trials That Shook the World."
