An Exhibit: Early Statutory Compilations and Codes
Posted on Wednesday April 25, 2018
The books presented in this post may seem to be nothing more than dusty old lawbooks, but they are in fact the mortal remains of Alabama’s frontier period. The energetic, mostly young men who made up Alabama’s legislatures faced the issues—national and local—of Jacksonian America. In response they spelled out their attitudes, self-interests, and startling biases for future generations to ponder. So in the adventurous spirit of that time, we invite our readers to read the signposts of what were once new ideas. We encourage you to visit our physical exhibit “Early Statutory Compilations and Codes” located in the main hall of UA’s Law Library.
The online catalog allows you to search the library’s physical collection and online articles.
The Bounds Law Library is open to the public; reference assistance is available during normal operating hours Monday through Friday.
