Indiana Legal History Grants

Indiana's lawyers and judges have been unusually active in promoting the legal history of their state. (See here and here.) The state bar's journal has recently posted the following notice of a grants program by the state supreme court and humanities council:
If you’ve wanted to print walking-tour brochures or create an oral history of your county’s courthouse, there’s now a grant that can help you achieve that goal.

The Indiana Humanities Council and the Indiana Supreme Court have collaborated on a new grant that will support research, documentation, and educational projects related to the state’s legal history.

Projects such as written and oral histories of courthouses, individuals, cases, guides to courthouses, and research related to court documents are a few examples of eligible projects. Projects can request Indiana Legal History Grants of up to $2,000.

The deadline to apply is Nov. 1. More information and applications is here.
