Penn Law's Legal History Consortium

We’ve just noticed a posting of two presentations this semester in Penn Law’s Legal History Consortium.  On Thursday, October 10, Mitra Sharafi, an Assistant Professor of Law at the University of Wisconsin Law School, will present a chapter from her forthcoming book, Law and Identity in Colonial South Asia: Parsi Legal Culture, 1772-1947 (Cambridge University Press, 2014).  On Thursday, October 31, Intisar A. Rabb, an Associate Professor of Middle Eastern and Islamic Studies and Law at New York University School of Law, will be presenting her paper "Toward a Portrait of Courts in Early Islamic Law."  All workshops take place in the Penn Law Faculty Lounge, Silverman 144, from 12:00-1:15 pm.
