American Society for Legal History - Historia Omnium Jurium - History of the Society

The History of the Society Project (HSP) seeks to preserve and provide access to information concerning the history and development of the American Society for Legal History. The resources housed at the site include historical lists of officers, board and committee members, as well as documents generated by the ASLH, and personal histories (both videos and transcripts) of interviews of senior members of the Society. The physical documents generated by the ASLH are preserved at the University of Illinois. The project is sponsored by the University of Houston Law Center.
