Weekend Roundup

  • Welcome to the blogosphere to H–Law’s World Legal History Blog, edited by Nurfadzilah Yahaya, a Research Fellow at Asia Research Institute at the National University of Singapore who received her PhD in History from Princeton University in 2012.
  • The Supreme Court Historical Society has announced a lecture for its members by Jeffrey Rosen, George Washington University Law School, at the Court on March 9, 2016, at 6 pm, to commemorate the 215th anniversary of John Marshall's appointment as Chief Justice of the United States. 
  • We imagine that some future historian of originalism will find in commentary following an announcement of Justice Scalia's an unusual opportunity to compare popular understandings of that concept with versions advanced by law professors, judges and other legal experts.  ICYM them, here is Nina Totenberg on NPR and OXY on The Liberal Yale Law Prof Who Agrees With Scalia.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
