Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich

A Special Exhibition at W&L Law

From March 20, 2017 through mid-April, the traveling exhibition "Lawyers Without Rights: Jewish Lawyers in Germany Under the Third Reich" will be on display at Washington and Lee School of Law. The German Federal Bar (Bundesrechtsanwaltskammer) and the American Bar Association are joint sponsors of the exhibit, which has appeared in more than three dozen cities in the United States and in several other countries since 2012. An event series consisting of lectures, panel discussions, and movie screenings, titled “Lawyering in Dark Times: Courage and Cowardice at the Bar” will run concurrently with the exhibit at W&L Law.

This guide, prepared by the W&L Law Library, highlights research materials and information resources relating to the themes of the exhibit, including the suppression of justice, equality, civil rights, and the professional practice of law in Nazi Germany.
