The Law series is divided into four main sections: Cases, Law Associations, Printed Materials, and Reform of the Judicial System, and includes correspondence and memoranda, reports, meeting minutes, and court documents. Cases includes the State of New Jersey v. William M. Frazer, the Long Island Railroad Commission, and Charles E. Mitchell against the Commission of Internal Revenue, and Law Associations includes the American Bar Association, the New York County Lawyers' Association and the New York Law Society. The printed materials are largely concerned with the justice system and legal profession, especially the New York court system, and the Reform of the Judicial System section contains information about a variety of reform efforts, including court delays, jury trials, and the reorganization of court systems, as well as Greenbaum's service on the advisory committee of the Columbia University Project for Effective Justice. The series also includes Greenbaum's notes from Columbia Law School.
