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).
Women at HLS: 60 Years of Transformation: This exhibit explores themes such as enrollment, sports and recreation, campus improvements, and student organizations – particularly the Women’s Law Association (WLA). It draws on Historical & Special Collections’ Photographs of HLS Students collection and the recently processed Red Set Ephemera collection.
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.
