Weekend Roundup

  • A Virginia Law press release describes UVA's Legal History Workshop, with a particular focus on JD-MA students.  It includes a sidebar on a new Legal History Writers Group at UVA, organized by Jessica Lowe.
    • Yesterday was the anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Mary's 2010 post on "How to Remember Pearl Harbor," available here, is as relevant as ever.  
    • New York University’s Tamiment Library announces the Center for the United States and the Cold War Fellowships and travel grants for 2013-2014. (hat tip: H-Law)
      •  The Georgetown Law Library announces the acquisition of two legal dictionaries, the Vocabularius Utriusque Iuris (1481) and a first edition of Pardoux Duprat’s Lexicon Juris Civilis et canonici (1567).  And for the most recent acquisitions at the Burns Library at George Washington Law, which include Decretales Gregorii IX (1475), check out its blog, The Burns Brief.
      • A recording of a radio interview of Scott Gerber, Ohio Northern Law, on John Adams and the origins of the independent judiciary is here.
      The Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
