Dan Ernst joins the Legal History Blog

I am very happy to announce that Dan Ernst, Georgetown Law School, is joining the Legal History Blog as an on-going co-blogger. Readers will remember Dan's recent stint as a great guest blogger. I'm sure you will enjoy his posts, and I am very much looking forward to working with him.
Dan's works include Lawyers Against Labor: From Individual Rights to Corporate Liberalism (1995), awarded the Littleton Griswold Award from the American Historical Association, and he is co-editor with Victor Jew of Total War and the Law: The American Home Front in World War II (2003). Links to some of his works are here. Most recently, he published LAW AND THE STATE, 1920–2000: INSTITUTIONAL GROWTH AND STRUCTURAL CHANGE in Volume 3 of the new Cambridge History of Law in America. Dan's essay can be found here.

Dan has served as co-editor of "Studies in Legal History," the leading book series in legal history sponsored by the American Society for Legal History and the University of North Carolina Press. In 1996, He was a Fulbright Research Scholar at the National Library of New Zealand in 1996, the Jack and Margaret Sweet Visiting Professor of History at Michigan State University in 1998, and a John Simon Guggenheim Memorial Foundation Fellow in 2003-04.

(Dan is on vacation, and so may not show up on the blog for a number of days. I am getting him signed on now before I take off later this week.)

Welcome, Dan!
