St. Mary's University School of Law Newspaper Collection

The Barrister’s News was the student paper for St. Mary’s University School of Law during the 1950s and 1960s. From founding to present, the School of Law was the only law school in the greater San Antonio region, with no other law schools located South of the school. The paper contains scholarly writing, news related to the local legal community as well as the School of Law, and San Antonio and School of Law items documenting the history of the city and of St. Mary’s University. Law journals, the current scholarly publishing vehicle, did not become common until the 1960s. Therefore, the older student paper contains a mix of current event and ephemera along with more in depth legal analysis of world issues and Texas legal history.
