A Reenactment of M'Culloch v. Maryland at the US Supreme Court

I know from my work with the Historical Society for the District of Columbia Circuit that lawyers love to reenact famous oral arguments, particularly if, as is usually the case, they doesn’t require anyone to don scratchy woolens and bivouac in a muddy cornfield.  The Supreme Court Historical Society has its own series, the Frank Jones Reenactments, the latest of which, M'Culloch v. Maryland, will be held Thursday, October 9, 2014 at 6:00 pm in the Chamber of the Supreme Court of the United States.  Mark R. Killenbeck, the Wylie H. Davis Distinguished Professor at the University of Arkansas School of Law, will provide a historical overview.  Then, with the Honorable Stephen G. Breyer presiding, the argument will proceed.  Neal K. Katyal will appear on behalf of James M'Culloch and Jeffrey S. Bucholtz will appear on behalf of the State of Maryland.  A reception is to follow in the East and West Conference Rooms.  Reservations are required to attend please call 202.543.0400 to make a reservation or if you have questions regarding the event.
