Weekend Round-up

  • The Yale Law Library Rare Books Blog has been posting snapshots of its new Life and Law in Early Modern England exhibit. You can find them here.
  • When I teach courses involving written assignments, I spend a lot of time thinking about how to convey some basic writing lessons without driving myself crazy or distracting too much from the substantive focus of the course. I liked the suggestions that Heather Cox Richardson posted over at the Historical Society. KMT
  • City Journal has posted an article by the French philosopher André Glucksmann, on the history of the idea of freedom. You can read it here. (Hat tip: bookforum)
  • Prawfsblawg has announced an upcoming "roundtable" on Birthright Citizenship. Historian Paul Finkelman is listed as one of the commentators. You can follow the conversation here.
The Weekend Round-up is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
