ASLH Seeks Nominations of Honorary Fellows

[Via H-Law, we have the following call for nominations of Honorary Fellows of the American Society for Legal History.]

The Honors Committee of the American Society for Legal History invites members of the society to
submit nominations of scholars whom, in their opinion, it would be appropriate to recognize by election to the Society's roll of Honorary Fellows.  Brief statements in support (no more than 200 words please) may also be submitted.  Member nominations should be submitted confidentially to the Acting Chair of the Honors Committee, Chris Tomlins

Nominations must be received no later than February 28th 2014.

Honorary Fellows of the Society are elected by the ASLH Board of Directors on the recommendation of the Society's Honors Committee.  In making its recommendations, The Honors Committee considers all those scholars who should be honored for their scholarship and contribution to the field of legal history.  A list of the Society's current Honorary Fellows may be found on the back cover of the Law and History Review, and is also available here.

The Honors Committee will consider all member nominees, along with nominees proffered by members of the Honors Committee itself.  Following the close of deliberations the Committee will proceed to prepare and submit up to three fully documented recommendations for approval by the Board of Directors during the summer months.  Elected fellows will be inducted at the Society's 2014 annual meeting in Denver.

Further information about the Society's Honorary Fellows can be found on the ASLH web page.
