  • Over at the Faculty Lounge, Roman Hoyos, reflecting upon Sally Gordon's post on legal historians and the hiring market and an accompanying comment, points out that among our attractions for law faculties is our interest in teaching a variety of high-traffic and required courses.
  • The Law Librarians at the Library of Congress have put together a useful Beginner's Guide to researching Congressional debates.
  • Over at the New Books in Law podcast, David Garland, NYU Law, discusses his book Peculiar Institution: America’s Death Penalty in an Age of Abolition (Harvard University Press, 2010).
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
