About the Oral History Project 

"As one of the first established schools at the University of Miami, the law school has played a significant role in the history of the University and has made an indelible impact on the community through the success and contributions of the law school's strong alumni. The law school itself has a rich and interesting history. Looking forward to the law school’s centennial, the Law Alumni Board recognized the importance of collecting the law school’s history for future generations by recording law school alumni recollections of their personal experiences and significant events at the law school, in their own words and through their own lenses and understanding of the time. This important endeavor is being achieved through our Oral History Project. We look forward to the continued active participation of our strong alumni base and to sharing and displaying their stories during the law school's centennial celebration and for many years to come."
