Exhibit highlights influential legal scholarship at Yale
An multimedia exhibition highlighting some of the path-breaking and most influential legal scholarship of Yale faculty members will be on view in the Law School’s Lillian Goldman Law Library throughout the fall term.
“From Legal Pads to iPads: An Exhibition of Great Yale Legal Scholarship” celebrates the Yale Law School Legal Scholarship Repository, an online, open-access website containing almost all past and present scholarly works by Yale law faculty. The repository is considered one of the most valuable free portals to legal scholarship available on the internet, and is accessed by individuals all over the world.
Current law faculty members whose articles are showcased in the exhibit include Ian Ayres LAW ‘86, Guido Calabresi LAW ‘58, William Eskridge ‘78 and Owen Fiss. Past professors included are Alexander Bickel, Thomas Emerson ‘31, Charles Reich ‘52 and Fred Rodell ‘31. The articles, although just a sample of faculty-produced writings, encompass some of the most heavily cited works in legal scholarship.
The exhibit, which is free and open to the public, is located in the reading room of the Law Library and can be viewed during normal library hours (see http://library.law.yale.edu). It is curated by Julian Aiken and Fred Shapiro.
