A Message from the ASLH

Charles Donahue, Harvard Law School, and a past-president of the American Society for Legal History, recently announced the following on H-Law:
As some members have already discovered, the Law and History Review will be published by the Cambridge University Press beginning in January of 2010. The transition has proved awkward particularly for those members (and there are many) whose annual memberships expired on October 1. Without notifying us, the University of Illinois Press took down their website for joining the Society and renewing memberships online, and Cambridge is not yet ready with a similar website.

In the interim, we have posted a PDF form for joining the Society and for renewing your membership. The form contains instructions for mailing, faxing, or emailing the form to Cambridge University Press. They are ready to accept your check or credit-card payment by any means other than a secure online website. They hope to have such a site available relatively quickly, but in the meantime, there is no particular reason to wait.

The form is easy to use.
Hat tip: H-Law

Update: Professor Donahue advises that "if you don't know when your membership expires, it probably expires on October 1." FWIW, I'm sending in my renewal now. DRE.
