July 25, 2019

In May 2019, members of Princeton University faculty were joined by scholars and thinkers from across the U.S. and Europe to discuss the topics of law, history, and political thought in Thomas Jefferson’s Legal Commonplace Book. Speakers included the new Director of European Cultural Studies, Anthony Grafton (History), Hendrick Hartog (History), and 2018-19 Old Dominion Research Professor Sean Wilentz (History).

The symposium titled “Necessary to Form a Lawyer” was co-sponsored by the Humanities Council and convened by The Papers of Thomas Jefferson at Princeton University.
