Judge Barry Schaller

This program has been cancelled.

Former Connecticut Supreme Court Justice Barry Schaller will discuss the craft of writing—both fiction and nonfiction—within a broader context of teaching and understanding literature.

Since retiring from the Connecticut Supreme Court, Judge Schaller has continued his judicial service at the Connecticut Appellate Court and the Superior Court, where he is developing a mediation docket program.  He received his B.A. from Yale College and an Honorary Doctor of Laws from Quinnipiac University School of Law. He is the author of A Vision of American Law: Judging Law, Literature, and the Stories We Tell (1997), Understanding Bioethics and the Law: The Promises and Perils of the Brave New World of Biotechnology (2008), and Veterans on Trial: The Coming Court Battles over PTSD (2012).

Barry Schaller is a Clinical Visiting Lecturer at the Yale Law School, where he received his law degree, and a Visiting Lecturer at Trinity College.  His first novel, The Ramadi Affair, was published early in 2016 by Quid Pro Books LLC, a publisher of fiction and non-fiction on law and society. The novel deals with issues of war and its consequences as well as law and society. Copies of Schaller’s book will be available for sale and signing.
