Weekend Roundup

  •  And more the Junto: Episode 11 of the Junto's regular podcast is out, and it's on the Declaration of Independence.
  • Thanks to @LHR_editor, we've learned of the Maryland State Archives website, Legacy of Slavery in Maryland, which has searchable databases containing the entries for "over 300,000 individuals including, white and black, slave owners, enslaved and free individuals from primarily the years of 1830 through 1880."
  • Summer housecleaning.  An inquiry from our library director leads us to ask: If you teach at a law school, does your library systematically collect official committee documents, such as reports, minutes, or research), beyond what finds its way into a chronological series in the dean's office?
  • From the Canadian Legal History Blog: A recap of the awards given at the annual meeting of the Osgoode Society for Canadian Legal History. Congratulations to graduate students Peter Price (Queen's University) and Mary Stokes (York University) for taking away honors! 
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
