Legal History Project
The Foundation’s Legal History Project preserves the record of the legal profession in Tennessee by conducting individual, video interviews of senior attorneys and retired members of the Supreme Court about their lives and experiences in the law, as well as the social and political issues of their day. The Project has also created eleven, 30-minute, entertainment video collages that contain the “best of” moments from each interviewee on selected topics. The collages are professionally produced, complete with titles and music.
The interviews and collages may be viewed on the internet and through this site:
- Video collages are available immediately below.
- Individual interviewees are listed alphabetically, below the group of collages.
** The individual interviews and collages are also available on DVD for loan or purchase. Contact the Foundation for details. DVD copies of the entire collection are housed at the Regional History and Genealogy Center of the Germantown (TN) Community Library. Selected DVDs are available at the Massey Library at Vanderbilt University Law School in Nashville and the Tennessee State Library and Archives (also in Nashville).
