Law Library Launches Its Digital Collection

The Law Library, in conjunction with University of Louisville Libraries, is pleased to announce the launch of the first phase of its digital collection, which draws on the library’s varied collections.

The first titles of the Law Library Collection to be made available are William Littell's Statute Law of Kentucky, which compiles all the legal enactments relating to Kentucky from its beginning as a district of Virginia to 1819, and Report of the Debates and Proceedings of the Convention for the Revision of the Constitution of the State of Kentucky (1849), a rare transcript of the debates of the convention that drafted Kentucky's third constitution.

Other upcoming collections will reproduce the original plates of H. Levin's Lawyers and Lawmakers of Kentucky (1897), and will digitize the early class composites of the University of Louisville Brandeis School of Law, starting with prints from the 1890s. In the future, the Law Library digital collection will dip into the institution's archival collections, reproducing scrapbooks kept by Malvina Harlan that document the life and times of Justice John Marshall Harlan.
