[Via H-Law, we have the following announcement from Mike Widener, Rare Book Librarian & Lecturer in Legal Research at the Lillian Goldman Law Library, Yale Law School.]

Registration is open for my Rare Book School course, "Law Books: History & Connoisseurship," taking place July 28 - August 1, 2014 at the Yale Law School Library in New Haven, Connecticut. The course is one of three that the University of Virginia's Rare Book School will offer that week on the Yale University campus.

For the 2014 classes, Rare Book School is using its new online application site, myRBS. Through myRBS, you will be able to apply for a course, gain access to and edit your contact information, view your course history and Friend status, and more. More details can be found on the RBS Application & Admissions page.

The description, preliminary reading list, and student evaluations for Course C-85, "Law Books: History & Connoisseurship," can be found here.  Enrollment in the course is limited to 12 students.

I am happy to answer questions about the course itself.  Questions about the registration process should be directed to Rare Book School staff.
