Appellate Division Law Library Assists Robert H. Jackson Project

In November, 2013, the library had the pleasure of working with the court to locate and provide digital copies of Supreme Court Justice Robert H. Jackson's (1892 - 1954) bar admission records. 

The records were requested by the Robert H. Jackson Center in Jamestown, NY to be used as part of their commemoration of the centennial year of Justice Jackson's admission to the New York Bar.

The confidential records were released by an order pursuant to Judiciary Law Section 90 (10) that was entered November 19th, just five days prior to the 100th anniversary.

The complete record of Justice Jackson's admission to the bar, including his character and fitness review, can now be viewed on the Jackson Center's website at:
