Law Special Collections maintains significant manuscript holdings on the history of legal thought and legal practice. Our collections are particularly strong in records of late nineteenth- and early twentieth-century legal practice, and many of these manuscripts came to Law Special Collections as gifts of UVA Law alumni/ae and faculty. These donations include: the diaries of William Minor Lile; the Prince Edward County Free School Association papers of F.D.G. Ribble; Judge Hardy Cross Dillard's International Court of Justice files; Richard Bonnie's papers concerning the investigation of Soviet psychiatric abuse; and Frank McCulloch's papers on the International Labor Organization. Additionally, our holdings include large international collections, ranging from seventeenth-century Italian wills, to papers of the United Nations, to the Records of the International Military Tribunal for the Far East.
We support the educational mission of the UVA Law Library by making these materials accessible for use in research and in teaching. As part of our active digitization program, we have digitized many of the items within our manuscript collections and archives.
