The hottest ticket in New York – catch Chadwick Boseman as “Marshall” at annual meeting!


It’s a little over a month until ABA Annual Meeting in New York. But while we’re off-Broadway, we’re going to raise the curtain on a show you won’t see anywhere else until October.

You can catch a free screening of “Marshall,” the upcoming movie about an early case in the career of then-future Supreme Court Justice Thurgood Marshall, on Friday, Aug. 11 at 4 p.m.

Marshall posterChadwick Boseman, who played Jackie Robinson in “42” and plays the lead in Marvel’s “Black Panther,” portrays Marshall in the film, which co-stars Josh Gad, Kate Hudson, Dan Stevens, Sterling K. Brown, and James Cromwell. Other historical figures featured in the film include Jussie Smollett as Langston Hughes and Rozonda Thomas as Zora Neale Hurston.

The Law Student Division will be catching “Marshall” on the big screen at a New York movie theater – complete with popcorn and a soda.

Seating is limited. You can reserve your seat for this ticketed Annual Meeting event on our registration page.

The “Marshall” screening is just one of several ticketed events to register for at Annual. Here’s some information on the others:
