Wednesday, September 21: Bobbleheads Fall Open House!

(Justice Blackmun, however, is not
the prize!) 
This fall, the bobbleheads are back by popular demand. All are invited next Wednesday, September 21, to an open house for the bobbleheads exhibit in the Riesenfeld Center:
"Equal Caricature Under Law: Supreme Court Bobbleheads by The Green Bag"

When: Wednesday, September 21, 12 noon - 4:00 p.m
Where: Riesenfeld Center, room N30 on the sub plaza level

Enter a drawing to win a Supreme Court bobblehead!  Enjoy free food and refreshments throughout the day.

Artful and highly collectible, the Supreme Court bobbleheads depict historical and current justices with witty references to the justices' notable cases.  The bobbleheads are produced in limited runs, and are typically obtained only by receiving and redeeming a sought-after certificate.  The Law Library is proud to hold the only complete institutional collection of the figurines, apart from a similar collection at the Yale Law Library.  

The exhibit includes over 30 historical volumes drawn from the Riesenfeld Center's Arthur C. Pulling Rare Books Collection.  From the Federalist Papers to Brandeis's famous dissent in Olmstead v. United States, these volumes, and accompanying biographical information, highlight the featured justices' careers and their significant work.
