Boston College Law School Fall 2009 Legal History Roundtable

In the fall of 2009, the Boston College Law School Legal History Roundtable started its eighth successful year. The Roundtable draws on Boston College Law School’s and Boston College’s strength and interest in legal history. The Roundtable offers an opportunity for Boston College faculty and faculty from other area institutions to meet and discuss a pre-circulated paper in legal history. Meeting several times each semester, the Roundtable seeks to promote an informal, collegial atmosphere of informed discussion. For the 2009-2010 academic year, Professor Mary Sarah Bilder, Professor Daniel R. Coquillette, Professor Frank Herrmann and Professor James S. Rogers are conveners.

Scholars visiting in the greater Boston area who are interested in attending should contact Professor Mary Sarah Bilder ( to be placed on the email list.
