Australian and New Zeland Legal History Conference

As a former Fulbrighter to New Zealand, I have been remiss in not touting sooner the 27th Annual Australian and New Zealand Legal History Conference, to be held at the University of Adelaide, South Australia, December 11-13, 2008. Keynoters will be Diane Kirkby (La Trobe University), speaking on "Workplace Opportunities and the Transformative Hazards of Gender," and John McLaren (University of Victoria, British Columbia), speaking on "Planters of the Caribbean: the Chimera of Judicial Independence in Britain’s West Indian Colonies in the Nineteenth Century." The website of the Austialian and New Zealand Law and History Society is here; the conference website is here; the program, here.
