In addition to their wealth of public service, many of Indiana’s lawyers and judges have extended themselves into the public sphere as authors. Some remained in the legal realm, some found their lives worthy of autobiography or memoir, and still others became accomplished historians. This exhibit is meant to give you a glimpse at some of these Hoosier legal literaries.
