In the aftermath of the Civil War, legislators in the Nebraska Territory grappled with the responsibility of forming a state government as well as with the larger issues of reconstructing the Union, protecting civil rights, and redefining federal-state relations. In the years that followed, Nebraskans coped with regional and national economic collapses. Nebraska women struggled for full recognition in the legal profession.

“More an anthology than a systematic history, The History of Nebraska Law represents a significant contribution to the legal history of the state.…The subjects are as varied as they are fascinating.”
