The American Association of Law Libraries has awarded its 2018 Law Library Publication Award (Print Division) to the BC Law creators of Robert Morris: Lawyer & Activist, the catalog that accompanied an exhibition of the same name in the Daniel R. Coquillette Rare Book Room last year. The winning entry was co-curated by Founders Professor of Law Mary Sarah Bilder, a legal historian; Legal Information Librarian and Lecturer in Law Laurel Davis, the curator of rare books; and Access Services Librarian Lily Dyer. The exhibit and 25-page illustrated catalog revealed the essential role Robert Morris—the second African-American lawyer in the United States—played in the Massachusetts antislavery and civil rights efforts. AALL is a body of more than 4,000 law librarian and information specialists and its awards program recognizes the achievements of law librarians for their service to the profession and contributions to legal literature and materials.
