New at HLS Library: Fashion and the Law

[We have the following announcement.]

The Harvard Law School Library is pleased to announce its new exhibit, What(Not) to Wear: Fashion and the Law. Given the central role that law and fashion play in our lives, it is no surprise that they have an impact on one another. Over the centuries, jurists have visually demonstrated their expertise through fashion, and law has served to circumscribe how fashion has been created, distributed, and consumed.

The exhibit was curated by HLS research library staff Mindy Kent, Meg Kribble, and Carli Spina (now of Boston College). It is on view in the Caspersen Room, fourth floor of Langdell Hall, daily 9 to 5 through August 12, 2016. If you are in the Boston area, we hope you will come by to see the exhibit. If a visit to Cambridge is not in your plans, please check out our online exhibit!
