Expanded Access to Historical Legal Documents

The Hastings Law Library has just purchased two new databases: Making of Modern Law: Trials, 1600-1926 and Making of Modern Law: Primary Sources, 1620-1926. The Trials database includes published trial transcripts, unofficially published accounts of trials, briefs, arguments and other trial documents. The Primary Sources database comprises over 1,300 individual titles, including early U.S. state codes, city charters, constitutional conventions, legal dictionaries, and the published records of the American Colonies. Both databases supplement Hastings’ existing subscription to Making of Modern Law: Legal Treatises, 1800-1926, which includes over 22,000 legal treatises on U.S. and British law published from 1800 through 1926.
Off-campus access to all three databases is restricted to Hastings students, faculty, and staff.
