The HLS Library’s Historical & Special Collections department is always in search of material that shows how people thought about and understood the law throughout recorded history. A current exhibit highlights some new and unusual acquisitions, many of which were meant to be accessible to people untrained in the law. They tell a story, through words and illustrations, of the sometimes cumbersome, sometimes harsh ways justice was executed in different societies and eras.
