Digital Exhibition: California's Legal Heritage

The Robbins Collection at the University of California, Berkeley has launched an exciting new digital exhibition, titled California's Legal Heritage. Here's the announcement:
2012 marks the sixtieth anniversary of the Robbins Collection and the hundredth anniversary of Berkeley Law. In honor of these milestones we are pleased to launch a digital exhibition entitled California’s Legal Heritage. The exhibition traces the origins of California law to the civil law tradition Spain brought to the Americas, and the impact of this tradition from the sixteenth century to the present day. Featured works from the Robbins Collection highlight key moments in the history of California as a territory under the civil law jurisdiction of Spain and Mexico and a US state governed by common law.
