Weekend Roundup

  • Have you registered for ASLH 2017?  We have.
  • From the Legal History Miscellany: two summer posts on coroners' inquests in English history--this by Cassie Watson on suicide and medico-legal experts and this by Krista Kesselring on deaths in custody.
  • Jed Shugerman, Fordham Law School, has posted his “historical tables/lists on major elected officials with prosecutorial backgrounds, 1880-2017,” which are part of his book project, “The Rise of the Prosecutor Politicians.”  What the Prison Policy Center made of them, for the recent American politics of “law and order” is here.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
