Weekend Roundup

  • Over at the Library of Congress, there is an online exhibition that may be of interest: "Drawing Justice: The Art of Courtroom Illustration showcases the Library’s extensive collections of original art by talented artists hired by both newspapers and television to capture the personal dynamics of legal trials." (h/t Slate's The Vault)
  •  In the Washington Post, Joanne Freeman (Yale University) writes about the "long, and ominous, history" of violence against members of Congress. 
  • Over at Concurring Opinions, Ronald Collins has a post on the centennial of the Espionage Act of 1917, with commentaries by Derik Bambauer, Erwin Chemerinsky, Geoffrey Stone and Stephen Vladeck.
  • The American Historical Association is offering a "sneak peek" at its January 2018 annual meeting in Washington, DC.  Panels include “New Histories of State Surveillance” and “Sexual Violence in Historical Context."
  • Al Brophy (UNC Law) has posted some thoughts on the famous case State v. Will - "and some other things, too." You'll find them at the Faculty Lounge.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
