In conjunction with the Inaugural Jamison Lecture featuring the renowned Sarah Weddington, the TWU Libraries' Woman's Collection--the largest depository in the Southern U.S. of research material about women--has curated a must-see exhibit of photographs, newspaper clippings, and other memorabilia representing highlights of Weddington's illustrious career.

The legendary attorney is thought to be the youngest person (at 26) ever to successfully argue a case before the Supreme Court. The former legislator and Presidential adviser will speak about women's leadership and the future at the lecture scheduled for 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 29, 2016 in the Ballroom of Hubbard Hall (#30 on the map here).

The Sarah Weddington exhibit, located in the first-floor lobby of the Blagg-Huey Library (next to Hubbard Hall; #35 on the map here), is free and open to the public during regular library hours. A TWU ID card is required to gain entry after 9 p.m.

Information on Sarah Weddington and much more is available in the holdings of the TWU Libraries. For help with legal research please contact Law Subject Librarian Woody Evans at kevans14@twu.edu. For other assistance please contact us here.
