The objective of The Minnesota Legal History Project is to increase knowledge of and research into the legal history of the State of Minnesota. It will do so by making available previously published articles and by publishing new or original studies of Minnesota’s legal past.
The Minnesota Legal History Project will publish studies of subjects that relate in any way to the legal history of the State of Minnesota, including the state constitution, state courts and judges, Indian treaties, tribal law and courts, significant litigation, the development of specific areas of the law, memoirs and biographical sketches of individual lawyers, judges and their support staffs, among others.
The Minnesota Legal History Project began operating in January 2008. With experience and over time, it will be redesigned to better meet the needs of its audience and to fulfill its ambitions. Suggestions for improvement are welcome and patience is advised.
The Minnesota Legal History Project is a private, noncommercial endeavor. It is not affiliated with the State of Minnesota.
