Author Robert Pigott will present and informative and fun slideshow on his book, New York’s Legal Landmarks. New York City is incredibly rich in locations of significance in legal history. New York’s Legal Landmarks is a historical guidebook to those locations for lawyers or anyone with an interest in the City’s history. It features courthouses past and present that were sites of sensational trials (both actual and in film), locations that figured in the nation’s constitutional history, law firms where great Americans practiced law and the homes, schools and final resting places of Supreme Court Justices. Even New Yorkers who know the City well will be surprised to discover the neighborhood courthouses that once dotted the City. Mr. Pigott’s book includes over 150, mostly vintage photographs and maps of all five boroughs showing the locations of the City’s legal landmarks.
