Hacking the Litchfield Law School
In 1774, Tapping Reeve’s first law student arrived in Litchfield, Connecticut, launching an institution that educated vice presidents, Supreme Court justices, senators, congressmen and governors. Yet its influence on American law is largely left unstudied. Join Linda Hocking of the Litchfield Historical Society and Jason Eiseman and Jordan Jefferson of the Yale Law School Library as they discuss how the Litchfield Notebooks Project has created challenges and opportunities in the areas of preservation, research, and technology and provided access to materials that will enable researchers to develop new understanding of the role of early legal education. Sponsored by the CBA Law Libraries section
