Unlike any other program available, The Defamation Experience is a riveting courtroom drama, with a twist—your audience is the jury.

The courtroom of The Defamation Experience offers a familiar setting for your audience to be engaged and moved by theater while coming face-to-face with some of the most pressing issues of our time: race, class, religion, gender, and the law. These issues can skew perceptions of jurors, judges, and even someone’s own legal representation, based on conscious or unconscious bias.

Through the power of theater, The Defamation Experience breaks barriers to self-examination allowing your audience to confront their own biases and engage in civil discourse, driving meaningful conversations that will last for days, weeks, and months.

Experiencing Defamation

Deborah Johnson shares her experiences booking DEFAMATION at RWU Law.

Trending @RWU Law: Diversity & "Defamation"

“… However, with this increase of racial and ethnic diversity, new challenges have emerged to promote greater inclusion for diverse students.  With more diversity in the classroom, there is a desire by those traditionally underrepresented in the legal profession to have a greater voice in talking about, and more discussion around, issues that affect them and their communities.  Students from all backgrounds are looking for opportunities to ask questions and share their perspectives on these issues and the law.  Yet, many are reluctant to have these conversations in class for fear of reprisal or of being misunderstood, misjudged and mislabeled.”

Here's What They Have To Say

"THE DEFAMATION EXPERIENCE was quite an experience indeed. We had high expectations coming in, but somehow the cast and crew exceeded them. The acting was phenomenal. The energy was contagious. And the reality of life's toughest topics was presented with class. The moderator Gina did an excellent job facilitating the post-show discussion and helped the crowd truly engage in nuanced discussions about things we encounter everyday but never talk about. On all accounts, the event was a hit."
