Origins of Freedom Event at IU McKinney

During an event at the IU McKinney School of Law on March 28th called the Origins of Freedom, we had the opportunity to showcase our great collection to the law students who attended the event. We allowed students to handle, hold, and take pictures of the works. This included titles such as the Magna Carta, The Federalist, Emancipation Proclamation and many more! After having the opportunity to interact with our historical works, students were treated to a two hour conversation on law featuring Senior Judge Randall Shepard and US 7th Circuit Judge John Tinder. A big thank you to the IU McKinney School of Law for allowing us to partner with you for this event!
