Siobhan Barco


I study American legal history in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. In particular, my research explores how the lives of women, the development of law, and the dissemination of printed materials have been intertwined across the span of American history. When I’m not absorbed in an archive, I produce and host the American Society for Legal History's “Talking Legal History” podcast and serve on the advocacy committee of the National Association of Women Lawyers. Prior to graduate school, I worked as an attorney representing both plaintiffs and defendants at a bustling civil litigation firm.
