The Library's exhibition program, coordinated by Historical & Special Collections, advertises the scholarly resources available to the academic community with an immediacy that cannot be experienced in any other way—a medieval manuscript, the first edition of Littleton's Tenures, a student notebook recording Professor Langdell's lectures—all evoke the time in which they were created and give richness to the history of the law and of the Harvard Law School.
HSC's exhibits are located in the Caspersen Room, located at the north end of the Langdell Reading Room. Hours are generally 9:00am to 5:00pm, Monday through Friday (closed for special events).
Research Revealed: Six Scholars Explore Historical & Special Collections: This exhibit features a variety of material used by six of our researchers over the past several years: Rowan Dorin, Moira Gillis, Andrew Porwancher, Geoff Shaw, Julia Stephens, and the Harvard Law School’s Program on Negotiation.
Library exhibitions have featured a wide range of materials from law books in fancy dress to crime broadsides to legal portraits. See Historical & Special Collections' index of past exhibitions for more information.
