New Display: The Library's Connecticut Collections

Author: 

Connecticut has an important place in the historical development of American law and government, as well as in the evolution of legal publishing. Connecticut is home to several important-- albeit debated -- firsts, such as the first Constitution and the first law reporter and legal text in the United States. The library endeavors to collect and maintain a comprehensive collection of Connecticut materials, from our oldest item – a book of statutes published in 1750 – to the current books and electronic resources that are critical to the practice of law in Connecticut.
