Legal History at the Harvard/Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum

I am just back from the Harvard/Stanford/Yale Junior Faculty Forum, held this year at Stanford Law School, and I want to note the exciting amount of legal historical work on display. For those who are unfamiliar with the Forum, its "objective is to encourage the work of young [legal] scholars by providing experience in the pursuit of scholarship and the nature of the scholarly exchange." Through a process of blind review, the conveners of the Forum choose 10-12 junior scholars to present each year, on topics ranging from environmental law to critical legal studies. Here are the titles and authors of the legal historical papers, with links to those that are available online:

Glorious Precedents: When Gay Marriage Was Radical
Michael Boucai, Associate Professor of Law, State University of New York Buffalo Law School

Liberated Patriarchs: Fathers’ Rights Activism and the Revolution in Family Law, 1960-2000
Deborah Dinner, Associate Professor of Law and Israel Treiman Faculty Fellow for 213-2014, Washington University School of Law, St. Louis, MO

Matthew Steilen, Associate Professor of Law, State University of New York Buffalo Law School
