Moments of Pause in Your Inbox

From a past Society event.

As we adjust to social distancing which prevents us from bringing you our live programming, and as we look for ways to nourish our spirits, we developed new ways to bring NYS legal history to your email inbox as moments to pause.


Podcast Spotlight
The Evolution of Slavery, Abolition in NY, and the NY Courts — The Lemmon Slave Case

Trustees Dennis E. Glazer and Hon. Albert M. Rosenblatt trace New York’s relationship with slavery from the early days of the colony to the climate of the nation leading up to the Civil War. This episode culminates in an investigation into the Lemmon Slave Case.

We’re also bringing you new digital programming through podcasts, covering wide-ranging topics from NYS legal history. We have quite a few exciting podcasts in the works!
