Weekend Round-Up

  • It is probably a breach of scholarly decorum to point out when colleagues have been remaindered.  With apologies, then, we note that until the end of the month you can get copies of Owen Fiss's and William Wiecek's contributions to the Holmes Devise History of the U.S. Supreme Court for only $20 a piece during the Cambridge University Press's New Year American History Sale.
  • Lucky law students at the University of Hawai'i: during the January term they can take legal history (or legal history inflected) courses from Christine Desan and Lawrence M. Friedman.
  • The Frances S. Summersell Center for the Study of the South at the University of Alabama invites researchers to apply for fellowships to use the University's collections. Resources in legal history include the files of Huntsville lawyer S.D. Cabiness and the antebellum law firm Belser and Harris. (Hat tip: H-Law.) 
The Weekend Round-Up is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.

Apparently the discount for the Holmes Devise History volumes "doesn't apply" to the United States, according to the message that popped up when I tried to check out using the discount code the link supplies.

I just ordered the Wiecek volume for $20 (US shipping address). UK is the default buyer location. Unless you change the delivery country, it assumes the UK is "your region."

Actually, I was able to purchase one of the volumes for $20. The website does not make it easy for you, however. The link from Dan's post initially took me from the sale page to the UK page, and the code doesn't work there. Then when you go to the US page, it seems as if it doesn't work there either. What finally worked for me was -- after switching to the US page, I went back to Dan's post and clicked on the sale link again. Finally the sale code worked. So if you are interested in shopping this sale, be prepared to spend a little bit of time navigating the an awkward webpage.

I believe I initially went into the sale from a link sent in an email message and had no problems. Sorry about that.
