Historical & Special Collections curates three major exhibits each year in the Law Library's Caspersen Room on the fourth floor of the Library. Smaller exhibits also rotate in and out of the Caspersen Room bookcases and at the Areeda Hall entrance to the Library in order to highlight interesting items from the collection.
We are currently building our new companion site for,
our latest exhibit in celebration of HLS|200.
Check back for updates to our site. In the meantime, should you find yourself on campus,
please take a few moments to visit our new exhibit in person, opening September 5, 2017.
