ASLH Calls for Nominations: Honorary Fellows

Via H-Law, we have the following announcement from the American Society for Legal History:
Call for nominations - Honorary Fellows of the American Society for Legal History

The ASLH Honors Committee invites members of the society to submit the names of persons whom they consider appropriate for election as Honorary Fellows of the society.  Names should be accompanied by brief (200 word) statements of support. Member nominations should be submitted confidentially to the Chair of the Honors Committee, Chris Tomlins.  They must be received no later than March 31st 2013.

Following the close of nominations the Honors Committee will consider all member nominees, along with nominations proffered by members of the Honors Committee itself.  Following the close of deliberations the Committee will proceed to prepare and submit up to three fully documented recommendations for approval by the Board of Directors during the summer months.  Elected fellows will be inducted at the Society's annual meeting.

Honorary Fellows are elected by the ASLH Board of Directors on the recommendation of the Society's Honors Committee.  The Honors Committee considers as eligible nominees all those scholars who should be honored for their scholarship and contribution to the field of legal history whatever their affiliation and wherever situated world-wide.  The only limitation is that no more than three Honorary Fellows may be elected in any given year.

Further information about the Society's Honorary Fellows can be found on the ASLH web page.
