And how, Smith is asked, might Dylan view lawyers?

“I think he probably likes lawyers better than judges,” she said with a chuckle. “I think he probably would like lawyers who fight for the little guy. He would not like Holden Caulfield from ‘Catcher in the Rye.’”

Coincidental to the conference will be the April 12 release of a Dylan recording from a long-ago folk festival in Waltham, Mass.

The set list from that appearance included “Ballad of Hollis Brown,” which relates what Dylan has said was the true story of how “seven shots ring out like the ocean’s pounding roar. There’s seven people dead on a South Dakota farm.”

The new release’s title? “Bob Dylan in Concert _ Brandeis University 1963.” The school was named for the late U.S. Supreme Court Justice Louis Dembitz Brandeis.
