Lawyers without Rights Exhibit
The Girard-diCarlo Center and the Villanova Law Library present Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich. This travelling exhibit from the American Bar Association and the German Federal Bar Association showcases the dangers to society when the rule of law is twisted and misused. As Justice Breyer has written, “It is important that we and future generations remember the misuse of laws in Germany and how it permitted a society to effectively purge a significant group of lawyers solely because of their religion, sending many in exile or to their deaths. It is about the misuse of law.”
The exhibit will be open to the public from 8:30 am to 4:30 pm Monday through Friday through October 18 on the second floor of the law library. Public visitors should check-in at the Circulation Desk.
