Abstract:
The Penn Law School Legal Oral History Project was a collaborative effort from 1999 through 2006 by a team of faculty, librarians, and students to record and preserve first-person narratives of graduates and members of the Penn Law Community as well as notable public interest lawyers. The project began as a seminar, the goal of which was to train students in the theory and practice of oral history. Each student then selected a distinguished graduate or member of the Penn Law community and conducted a one-to-two hour videotaped interview. Following the interview, the student transcribed the videotape and prepared a biographical article. The collection, dated 1999-2006, includes transcripts of interviews of distinguished Penn Law School alumni, associated members of the Penn Law community, and public interest lawyers. The collection also includes biographical essays of the interview subjects and interview questions written by the law students, as well as background research compiled by the law students, typewritten correspondence, occasional photographs, brief handwritten annotations, and related materials.

Biography/History

From 1999 to 2006, The Penn Law School Legal Oral History Project was a collaborative effort by a team of faculty, librarians, and students to record and preserve first-person narratives of graduates and members of the Penn Law community as well as notable public interest lawyers. The project began with a seminar taught by Professor Sarah Barringer Gordon and Edwin Greenlee, Associate Director for Public Services of the Biddle Law Library. One of the primary goals of the project was to train students in the theory and practice of oral history. Each student then selected a distinguished graduate or member of the Penn Law community and conducted a one-to-two hour videotaped interview. Following the interview, the student transcribed the videotape and prepared a biographical article. The videotape, transcript, article, and related biographical information were then archived in the Biddle Law Library.

Scope and Contents

The Penn Law School Legal Oral History Project Files, 1999-2006, include transcripts of interviews of distinguished Penn Law School alumni, associated members of the Penn Law community, and public interest lawyers. The interviews were conducted by students enrolled in the Penn Law School at the time.
