"Emerson's bar review is a great course. I learned SO much about the law application, writing approaches and PT's. The "what to write" study guides, lectures, and phone sessions with Emerson were so helpful. He took so much of his time to answer the questions that I had without making me feel gulity for taking his time. Thank you so much Emerson!"

Freeman and College Park Forum Editor,
During Shakespeare's times, criminal action was divided into three main categories: treason, felonies, and misdemeanors. Treason was by far the most serious of all crimes, and the playwright reflected this fact in several of his plays. There were two types of treason: high treason was any act that could threaten the monarchy, as well as counterfeiting. The punishment was death by hanging, removing the culprit's internal organs, or dismemberment. This was a crime often associated with the upper classes, and possibly, the most famous real-life example of the severity of treason was the execution of Queen Mary, who was sentenced to death by her own sister Queen Elizabeth I on the grounds of treachery. Petty treason involved acts of rebellion in other contexts, such as between husband and wife or master and servant.
