Legacies of Lincoln Conference & Database of Materials from Lincoln's Law Practice

From the Marquette Law School Faculty Blog:

This year marks both the bicentennial of Abraham Lincoln's birth and the sesquicentennial of his visit to Milwaukee to speak at the Wisconsin State Fair... To commemorate these events, Marquette University Law School, together with the Department of History, will host a conference entitled "Legacies of Lincoln." This conference, occurring on October 1 & 2, promises to be a very fine event.
For more information, see the website. Note that CLE credit is available for a fee.

One of the sessions on Friday is entitled "Lincoln as Lawyer" which reminds me of a database I learned about at the AALL Annual Meeting last month. The Law Practice of Abraham Lincoln is a free database containing records, letters, documents, contemporary printed accounts, or after-the-fact recollections that relate directly to Abraham Lincoln's law practice during the years 1836 to 1861.
