 A History of the Litchfield Law School
WITH ALMOST 1,000 students attending from every region of post-Revolutionary America, the Litchfield Law School launched the careers of many well-known Americans including two vice-presidents, 101 United States congressmen, twenty-eight United States senators, six cabinet members, three justices of the United States supreme court, fourteen governors and thirteen chief justices of state supreme courts.
