Hyder Collection finds a permanent home at the Law School

For more than half a century, students at the Law School have enjoyed the Hyder Collection—thousands of legal-related art pieces on semi-permanent loan and displayed throughout the school that, in addition to their aesthetic value, have served to provide a social and historical context for the study of the law. Now, thanks to the efforts of many, a large part of that collection has found a permanent home at the school.
