Garden City, N.Y.: Doubleday, 1986, 323 p. This is a study of the 71 women in the Harvard Law School class of 1974 by two staff reporters for The American Lawyer. The book includes a statistical profile for each woman in this class and offers a snapshot of their lives a decade after law school. These women are not considered pioneers but they are seen, by the authors, as being "in the vanguard of" a revolution, a revolution spurred on by the burgeoning women's movement as these women, just 12% of the first year class, sought to enter a challenging profession at a "most challenging proving ground."

    "Law reflects the agenda of controversy–the things that are in actual dispute. It also gives strong negative evidence about which issues are not in dispute, the things that nobody questions."
    Lawrence Friedman, "Notes Toward a History of American Justice"
    Course Overview
    This course will focus on three significant legal cases in Western history: the Inquisition trials of Galileo Galilei (1615-16 and 1632-33), the Puritan Examinations of Anne Hutchinson (1637-38), and the Virginia court proceedings involving Nat Turner (1831). Each of these cases received widespread attention in its time, and each has generated substantial critical literature and commentary during the years since it was adjudicated. For each case, we will examine primary source legal documents, historical accounts, critical analyses and interpretations of the incident (both contemporaneous and retrospective), and fictionalizations of the case, in the form of movies, plays, and/or novels.

Discussion questions and activities will feature strategies for analyzing evidence and historical context presented in both the film and Web site. Teachers will use such materials as historical documents, interviews, dramatizations, timelines, book reviews, bibliographies, art, and comparative historical cases to closely involve students in the process of critically interpreting history. Themes for Discussion:
    • values social classes technology/forensics role of government role of media prejudice psychology/group psychology economics art history
    Discussion Questions Before Watching the Film: 1. What are the jobs of historians? What are their goals? What evidence do they use? How do they sift through conflicting accounts and facts? 2. What are the roles of judge, prosecutor, and defender in the American legal system? Do checks and balances exist between the groups? 3. What is the job of jury members? What is "reasonable doubt?"

    "The law shall have its course. I will live and die by the law."
    Lieutenant-Governor Thomas Hutchinson
    March 5, 1770. British Private Hugh White stands sentry duty in the snowy, moonlit street before the Custom House. Moments before, he had sent a local boy running off, bruised and crying, after an exchange of words. Now, facing an angry crowd of civilians, White calls for help. Captain Thomas Preston and seven soldiers respond. Bells ring out nearby from the Old Brick Church, normally the town's fire alarm. On the dark street, people are shouting "Where's the fire?" adding to the confusion and tension. At the Custom House the crowd presses in, began to throw ice and rocks, taunting the soldiers, damning them to fire their muskets, knowing that soldiers are forbidden to shoot without orders from a civil magistrate. Private Hugh Montgomery is knocked down, and someone yells "Fire!" The soldiers shoot into the crowd, killing five and wounding six. Thomas Hutchinson, the acting governor, rushes from his North End home, past blood-stained snow, into the chambers of the Old State House. Civilian leaders of Boston pressure him to remove the soldiers from the city to prevent further violence. Hutchinson steps onto a balcony to address the large crowd still in the street.
