When COVID-19 shut down New York, the courts stayed open. How the work of the courts continued is a central theme of a new digital archive of oral histories from the Historical Society of the New York Courts and the Unified Court System.
Dispensing Justice from a Distance: Journal of the NYS Courts During the Pandemic includes nearly 40 recorded interviews – with judges, clerks, public safety officers, and technology professionals – tells their experiences during the pandemic, and includes an interactive timeline of the court system’s major milestones.
Founded in 2002, the Historical Society of the New York Courts’ mission is to preserve, protect and promote New York’s rich legal history.
