Tapping Reeve House and Litchfield Law School
Tapping Reeve House and Litchfield Law School Review
In 1773, Judge Tapping Reeve enrolled his first student, Aaron Burr, in what became the first law school in the country. (Before Judge Reeve, students studied the law as apprentices, not in formal classes.) This school is dedicated to Reeve's achievement and to the notable students who passed through its halls, including three U.S. Supreme Court justices. This museum is one of the state's most worthy attractions, with multimedia exhibits, an excellent introductory film, and restored facilities.
