Maryland Legal History Publications
Maryland Legal History Publications, maintained by the University of Maryland Francis King Carey School of Law. Papers by Maryland law students predominate, lately with a concentration on admiralty and maritime law. Michael Schearer, for example, has posted The General Smith: Early 19th Century Baltimore and the Supreme Court's Admiralty Jurisdiction there and on SSRN. Also of interest is Patrick R. Browning’s The Gran Para: The Delicate Dance of South American Privateering from Baltimore, a study of a libel filed by Consul General of Portugal in the District Court of Maryland over silver and gold coin taken from a Portuguese ship.
