Through a partnership with the Robert H. Jackson Center, Allegheny College has expanded and enhanced its set of unique study, research, and community engagement opportunities of extraordinary quality in the areas of law, courts, and international human rights.
The Robert H. Jackson Center is the world’s preeminent resource for primary source materials on the life, work and legacy of Robert H. Jackson. Jackson was a leading lawyer of the New Deal Era, serving as Solicitor General, Attorney General, Associate Justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, and the Chief U.S. Prosecutor at the Nuremberg War Crimes Tribunal. The Center is home to transcripts, interviews, scholarly research, historical artifacts, and many other resources relating to the central role that Robert H. Jackson and his legacy has played—and continues to play—in domestic and international policy and law.
The Partnership is a key element of Allegheny College’s Law & Policy Program and supports student internships, research, and a wide range of programming dedicated to Jackson’s legal legacy and to the myriad connections of its relevance to contemporary national and international events.
