Weekend Roundup

  • From the Chronicle of Higher Ed: an essay on notes, "the ones that intervene between the things we read and the things we write." (Hat tip: Arts & Letters Daily)
  •  The Law Librarians of the Library of Congress want you to know about their Soviet legal resources. Learn more here, at In Custodia Legis.
  • R.I.P. Claude-Anne Lopez. Ellen Cohn (The Papers of Benjamin Franklin) describes her as "the premier historian of Benjamin Franklin's private life." Read more of Cohn's tribute here, on H-net. (Hat tip: H-Law)
  • Am I the last legal historian to realize that both the Association of American Law School's Directory of Law Teachers (from 1920 on) and the Proceedings of its Annual Meeting (from 1900 on) are available on Hein Online?  DRE
  •  From January 24-26, the University of Texas Law School will host a symposium titled "Is America Governable?" The final schedule, which includes Sandy Levinson, Jack Rakove, Steven Skowronek, and many others, is available here, at Balkinization.
The Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
