Harvard Law School’s latest information on COVID-19

Open to all, Historical & Special Collections (HSC) connects researchers around the world with legal history, and supports the Harvard Law School’s research, teaching, and learning mission. Aligned with the Harvard Law School Library’s mission and strategic plan, HSC’s expert staff stewards the Law School’s rich collections by acquiring, cataloging, preserving, sharing, and digitizing materials to maximize their use. We strive to integrate these collections into the life of the Law School and beyond, connecting them with researchers onsite, in the classroom, and around the world.
