Remembering 9/11

How the HLS community gathered and reflected over the decades

Over the past 20 years, the Harvard Law School community has come together numerous times on campus to seek comfort and join the nation in mourning the victims of the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks. A selection of images taken on September 14, 2001, and 10 years later on September 11, 2011 follows.
