Weekend Roundup

  • In an op-ed in the New York Times, historian Sean Wilentz (Princeton University) argues that by refusing to raise the debt limit, Congressional Republicans run afoul of the Fourteenth Amendment. The piece inspired comment from Jack Balkin (Yale Law School), here.
  • The Yale Law Library Rare Books Blog introducesBuilt by Association: Books Once Owned by Notable Judges and Lawyers, from Bryan A. Garner’s Collection.” The exhibition, curated by Bryan A. Garner with Mike Widener, is on display until December 16, 2013, at the Lillian Goldman Law Library. 
  • Via H-Law: "FASPE (Fellowships at Auschwitz for the Study of Professional Ethics) is now accepting applications for a fellowship that uses the conduct of lawyers and judges in Nazi Germany as a launching point for an intensive two-week early summer program about contemporary legal ethics."
