Lynn Boughey JD ’83 was one of three Hamline Law Alumni who participated in the cases of Scotland v. Macbeth & Lady Macbeth and Denmark v. Hamlet in Fargo, ND in April. Lynn, who represented Hamlet, Macbeth, and Lady Macbeth, is a Bismarck lawyer, author and Shakespeare scholar. Robert Martin JD ’88, a North Dakota public defender and a candidate for judgeship, represented Denmark. Birch Burdick JD ’92, North Dakota’s Cass County Attorney, represented Scotland.
It wasn’t too long after Carrie Bakken JD ’98 received her law degree, that she tried something completely different and never looked back. In 2001, Carrie and a group of teachers founded the Avalon School, a Saint Paul charter school that is teacher-led and where students learn through self-directed, project-based study.
