Repository description (CRHP): The National Equal Justice Library (NEJL) is part of the Special Collections department of the Georgetown Law Library.
The NEJL has over 70 oral history recordings on VHS and DVD, including interviews with members of the defense team in the landmark Gideon v. Wainwright case, which upheld the constitutional right to counsel in criminal cases; Hillary Clinton, who served on the board of the Legal Services Corporation in the 1970s; and other leading figures in legal services history.
Repository description (extant): The Georgetown Law Library supports the research and educational endeavors of the students and faculty of the Georgetown University Law Center. This web site furthers that mission by collecting and organizing information about research resources on the Web and at the Library.
In August 2004, Georgetown opened a new complex to complete the Capitol Hill campus. Included in the new Hotung Building is the John Wolff International and Comparative Law Library. This facility complements the Edward Bennett Williams Law Library and together these locations comprise the Georgetown University Law Library.
