The Joseph W. Martin Institute for Law & Society was established in memory of Joseph Martin Jr. (1884-1968), the former Speaker of the House of Representatives. As a Congressman representing a nearby district, Speaker Martin had a close relationship with the College and received an honorary Doctor of Letters degree in 1955. Upon Speaker Martin's death in 1968, the College acquired his papers and documents.
In 1986, President Ronald Reagan signed into law legislation for the creation of an institute at Stonehill College in Martin's honor. Joseph W. Martin Institute for Law & Society was constructed by Stonehill in 1990 with Congressional funding.
