Two New Exhibits at the Harvard Law School Library

By Karen Beck

The Harvard Law School Library’s Historical & Special Collections team is pleased to announce two new exhibits, both on view from 9 to 5 daily in the Caspersen Room, Langdell Hall, through mid-August 2015.

It Was a Dark and Stormy Semester … Portrayals of Harvard Law School in Literature” seeks to highlight the role of Harvard Law School in fiction. Sometimes the law school serves as the scene, sometimes the featured characters are law school graduates, and sometimes the law school inspired its students to become novelists during their JD studies. A companion website to the exhibit can be found here. The exhibit was curated by Library staff members Claire DeMarco and Ed Moloy.

By Popular Demand” is our first student-curated exhibit. It features objects in a variety of formats from Historical & Special Collections, selected by HSC staff and voted on by HLS students.

I hope you have a chance to view both exhibits next time you find yourself in the Cambridge area.
