Established in 1952 by Lloyd McCullough Robbins in memory of his parents, The Robbins Collection is an international center for comparative legal and historical studies based at the School of Law (Boalt Hall) at the University of California at Berkeley. On this website, visitors can learn about the Collection and its public programs. In "The Collection" section, users can read about their holdings, and click on areas like "Civil Law" and "Religious Law" to learn more about their various archives. Moving on, the "Outreach" area located within the "Programs & Events" section contains educational resources on the Roman legal tradition, complete with a historical timeline, glossary, and a print version with additional scholarly resources. One particularly noteworthy feature on the site is an online exhibit about the medieval law school which contains digitized images from important early legal texts, such as Institutiones, compiled by the Byzantine emperor Justinian I.
