Welcome to the home page of H-LAW, a Humanities Social Sciences Online discussion network sponsored by the American Society for Legal History. H-LAW solicits discussion of issues relating to teaching and research in the history of all legal traditions: common-law, civil-law, and all other legal systems.
Looking to put together a panel for the American Society for Legal History 2018 annual meeting? The deadline to submit panels and papers is March 1, 2018.
I have been asked to post the following announcement:
A judge in the Washington, DC area is looking for someone to assist him in writing his memoirs. The work would include helping to organize the judge’s papers and helping to structure his narrative. The assistant would likely begin by interviewing the judge, recording the interviews, and conducting independent research as needed to provide context. The work would be done in the evening or on weekends at the judge’s home.
