Daily Record Highlights the School of Law's Work to Preserve Baltimore's Legal History

In an effort to preserve the history of Baltimore's legal community, a new exhibit and walking tour have been created by professors and librarians at the School of Law. Professor Garrett Power, in his role as President of the Westminster Preservation Trust, facilitated the creation of an exhibit that details the history of Westminster Hall and Burying Grounds. Using pictures, drawings and multimedia, the presentation covers the building’s journey from the First Presbyterian Church and Western Burial Ground to its current incarnation as Westminster Hall.
