Weekend Roundup

  • JOTWELL has announced a new section: Lex will "feature a selection of legal topics that do not necessarily have the publishing volume to carry a section of their own." 
  • We’ve previously noted that on Monday Risa Goluboff is speaking at the Woodrow Wilson Center on "A People Out of Place: A Constitutional History of the Long 1960s.”  She will be addressing the same topic on Tuesday, 14 January at 1 pm at the Teamsters Labor History Center in Gelman Library at George Washington University.
  • The Hawaii Reporter notes that among the “top legal scholars” who taught in the "January Term" of the University of Hawai‘i at Manoa's William S. Richardson School of Law School was Harvard’s Kenneth Mack.  His course was “Race and the Law in the Civil Rights Movement.”
  • Here is a book notice on The Face of Justice on Newfoundland’s Northeast Coast in the online edition of the newspaper The Compass.  More on the work of the SS Daisy Legal History Committee is here.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
