The Law Library Exhibit in the Marshall Gallery: Diversity and the Law

This LibGuide highlights changes to the David C. Shapiro Memorial Law Library Exhibit in the Marshall Gallery in Swen Parson Hall.

Diversity & the Law

Spring 2015

The Law Library display focuses on firsts within the field of law relating to diversity. A timeline is used to highlight specific events and people who were the pioneers in integrating the professional legal field. This includes both racial/ethnic firsts as well as some important LGBTQ and religious firsts. A number of books that are held at the library are also featured which focus on the history of the individuals and events that broke the color barrier within the legal field as well as the glass ceiling for women.
