Hundred Years of New England Law | Boston
(Boston, Revised 11/13/09) New England Law | Boston:New England Law | Boston's new Centennial history exhibit includes images of people, places, and events that have shaped New England Law throughout its 100 year history. The exhibit is located in the law library, and is open to the public.
An accompanying website also chronicles the law school’s past and present. Organized into four eras, each section includes a timeline of important events and personalities in the school’s history. Of special note are ten interviews with graduates of Portia School of Law, who relate their own unique stories about the law school and how it affected their lives. The interview subjects include Eleanora Fantony Burke, ’35, who spoke at the Centennial Convocation.
We encourage visitors to stop by the law school library during regular library hours to see the exhibit or visit the website at www.nesl.edu/HistoryProject/. For questions, please contact the Archive staff.
The exhibit was developed from materials from the Portia Law School and Calvin Coolidge College archives. Anyone who has additional original materials or photographs from between 1908 and 1969, and would like them included in the archives, is invited to contact Karen Green, library archivist, by phone at 617-422-7417 or via e-mail. All items will be digitally scanned and returned.
