The Harvard Law School Library uniquely owns and manages approximately one million pages of documents relating to the Nuremberg Trials: thirteen trials conducted just after World War II to prosecute leaders of the Nazi regime. To preserve the contents of these documents—which include trial transcripts and full trial exhibits—the library has undertaken a multi-stage digitization project to make the collection freely accessible online.
The trajectory of state intelligence gathering and invasions of privacy made possible by a digital environment were the focus of a session titled “National Security: National Security, Privacy, and the Rule of Law,” part of the HLS in the World bicentennial summit which took place at Harvard Law School on Friday, October 27, 2017.
At the end of October, some 3,000 members of the HLS community participated in Harvard Law School’s Bicentennial Summit: HLS in the World. If you attended, you were in the company of HLS legislators, governors, judges, public interest leaders, entrepreneurs, financiers and journalists from around the globe.
