College of Law History

Founded in 1908 from a law program initiated at Transylvania University in 1799, the University of Kentucky College of Law was one of the nation's first state law schools. In 1913, the College established the nation's first law school trial practice program. In the same year, the college began publishing the Kentucky Law Journal, the tenth-oldest student-run law review in the nation. The College of Law has been approved by the American Bar Association since 1925 and was elected to Order of the Coif, the most prestigious national legal honorary society, in 1931.

This collection presents various photographs and documents detailing the College of Law's history, its professors, and its alumni.
