Summer has come to a close for all of us tied to the academic calendar, which should make it a good time to reflect on a fun collaborative project I've been occasionally hacking on for the last several months. This project, which I'm pursuing in partnership with historian David Tanenhaus with important support from the Boyd School of Law Library at UNLV, has two goals: to explore possible utilities of digital tools in legal history, and second, to try to use those tools to uncover buried historical connections in sources related to the evolution of juvenile justice policy in the United States during the Clinton era.

WHY LEGAL HISTORY?
