Know Your Rites: A Talk About Magic and the Law

Anyone who has been involved with the legal system will tell you that it can be pretty esoteric ... but what happens when magicians go to court? Can curse slinging witches be sued for damages? Is a haunted property a legal liability? Just what are the laws on Bacchanal orgies anyway?

Catland owner and lawyer Fred Jennings will answer these questions and more as he outlines famous encounters between mystical forces and the law, as well as examining the legal system itself as a kind of ritual, often involving the direct participation of the gods themselves.

$8 entry. Complimentary wine will be provided.
