If you’ve ever had the opportunity to visit the headquarters of the State Bar of Georgia, you may have come across its exhibit of famous cases in legal history, somewhat out of place among the conference rooms. Since very few non-lawyers do go to the State Bar headquarters, however, the Bar has launched an online version of its law museum. The State Bar’s virtual museum includes 30 historically significant cases including the Salem witch trials, Brown v. Board of Education, Marbury v. Madison, and Furman v. Georgia. The online version is more pithy and “student-friendly” than that housed on Marietta Street, including animated videos, which makes for a quick and interesting read.
