Harvard Law School Celebrates Its 200 Years

Harvard Law School, founded in 1817, is celebrating its 200th birthday this year.  It organized an October summit for exploring big ideas, “HLS in the World” with videos of many of the events posted on YouTube. You can find them here. There are so many that it's hard to offer a selection on this blog, but one of the most popular is an interview with Harold Koh and Samantha Power about their careers as academics and government officials in the area of international law. Another one is a discussion with three federal appellate judges about how they work. Part of the celebration even included a re-argument of the landmark Supreme Court case of Marbury v. Madison. The videos posted are usually about 1h 30 min, no transcript, but often good subtitles.
The law school appears to be adding more videos in addition to the 30 already posted.
