Attend Student-Written Play about Arvinger Case on April 27

In 2005, Maryland Law students and faculty won freedom for Walter Arvinger, wrongfully convicted of murder and in prison for more than 36 years, when Governor Robert Ehrlich commuted Mr. Arvinger's sentence and released him.

A 35-minute play about the Arvinger case, written this semester by students in Michael Millemann and Robert Bowie’s Legal Systems and Their Social Context class, will be performed by the students on Monday, April 27, at 3:30 p.m. in the Ceremonial Courtroom. As part of the Law School’s LEAD Initiative, the play will tell the Arvinger story while focusing on professional responsibility issues.

Earlier this semester, former Governor Ehrlich visited the class to discuss his decision in the Arvinger case and its role in re-invigorating executive clemency in Maryland.

A reception will follow the performance. All are invited to attend.
