Weekend Roundup

credit: LSA
  • The Law and Society Association annual meeting kicks off in New Orleans in a few days: June 2-5. Plenty of great-looking legal history panels sponsored by CRNs on Law and History, British Colonial Legalities, Colonialism and Post-colonialism, Islamic Law and Society, South Asia, and others. Here is the program. If you'd like to write an LHB blogpost on panels you attend, let us know.
  • Stanford University is to rename a residential complex in honor of the constitutional historian Gerhard Caspar, who, as president from 1992 to 2000, revitalized undergraduate education at the university, and, as dean of the University of Chicago Law School, taught me a stunningly successful course on the separation of powers in the early republic.  DRE
  • H-Asia reminds us that it keeps a running list of digital archives and blogs on Asian studies here.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
