Shakespeare in the Classroom

meet-hermann2.jpgWhen he's not practicing law, Cohn Lifland Managing Partner Jeffrey Herrmann is an adjunct professor at Kean University, teaching a survey course on Shakespeare to undergraduates. The Columbia University graduate had an inspiring and memorable professor who instilled in him a passion for Shakespeare. "Most courses you forget a minute after the class ends. If you're lucky, a handful stick," says Herrmann, "For me, it was Shakespeare." While attending Columbia Law School, he cut law school classes to audit Shakespeare on the other side of Amsterdam Avenue.

Forty years later, he has the opportunity to share his love through his course. He points to the themes in so many of the great Shakespearean plays - power, love, man's relationship with God.

Herrmann will be studying six Shakespeare plays with his students. To cap off the semester, he will take his class to see a performance of Richard III at the New Jersey Shakespeare Festival. Adds Hermann, "I bring a great deal of enthusiasm to the course I teach. If, years from now, my students drag their spouses to see a Shakespeare play, I will consider my efforts a success."
