UW Law Library’s Newest Faculty READ Poster

Each year, the Law Library creates a new Faculty READ Poster to be added to our collection. This year, we were lucky enough to have emeritus professors Bill Whitford and Stewart Macaulay grace the poster. If you are in the library, be sure to check it out, as it is on temporary display near the reference desk. Big thanks to Mike Hall (our photographer) and a gigantic thanks to Mary Jo Koranda for coordinating and creating the poster layout. It looks great, and we are happy to share it with the world! Check out our other faculty READ posters on our Pinterest page.
