The making of modern law. Trials, 1600-1926
Boasts more than 10,000 titles and nearly two million pages of fully searchable content from the law libraries of Harvard and Yale as well as The Library of the Bar of the City of New York.
Many of the narratives cover ordinary people caught in situations that generated publicity while others raise interesting questions about celebrity and crime. Still others are precedent-setting trials associated with important constitutional and historic issues, including the Dred Scott Case and the Scopes Monkey Trial.
