An Afternoon with Author Paul Deforest Hicks: The Litchfield Law School: Guiding The New Nation
By Greenwich Historical Society

Wednesday, January 15, 2:00 to 3:00 pm
In the Gallery for Permanent Collections @ Greenwich Historical Society


In this well-researched and engaging book, Paul DeForest Hicks makes a case that the Litchfield Law School provided the most innovative and successful legal education program in the country for almost 50 years (1784–1833). A recent history of the Harvard Law School acknowledged, “In retrospect, both Harvard and Yale have envied Litchfield’s success and wished to claim it as their ancestor.” More than 1,200 bright and ambitious students came from all over the country to study law at Litchfield, including Aaron Burr and John C. Calhoun. Hicks gives fascinating details about many who succeeded as lawyers and in public office but also in the fields of business, finance, education, art and the military. Members: $10, Non-Members: $15
