Weekend Roundup

  • Texas lawyers can get up to 6.75 hours of CLE for a day-long meeting in Austin, The History of Texas Supreme Court Jurisprudence.  The bench and bar predominate as presenters, although SMU Law's William Dorsaneo contributes a paper on the court's role in developing rules of court.  (Hat tip: Josiah Daniel)
  • One of the first stories on a website devoted to the history of the University of Michigan's is on The Warrior Scholar, Yale Kamisar
  • Over at Books & Ideas, Alice Conklin reviews two books on "colonial science": Helen Tilley, Africa as a Living Laboratory: Empire, Development, and the Problem of Scientific Knowledge, 1870-1950 (University of Chicago Press, 2011) and Pierre Singaravélou, Professer l’Empire: Les “sciences coloniales” en France sous la IIIe République (Publications de la Sorbonne, 2011).
  • Seth Barrett Tillman, National University of Ireland, Maynooth, has sent us “a call for submissions from the Irish Law Journal, a hybrid peer-reviewed student-edited journal. If you have a paper that is exclusively tied to an American audience, then it will be of little interest to ILJ. But if you have an article touching on the permanent things, or comparative law, public or private international law, or any other topic (including legal history) that may interest an Irish, European, or transnational audience, then it will be actively considered.  Book reviews are also welcomed.”
The Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History Bloggers.
