Weekend Roundup

  • Washington & Lee University has appointed a Commission on Institutional History and Community to lead the university ”in an examination of how our history — and the ways that we teach, discuss and represent it — shapes our community.”  Its chair is Brian Murchison, the Charles S. Rowe Professor of Law.
  • We recently mentioned Josh Chafetz's very timely Congress's Constitution. The blog Take Care recently hosted an on-line symposium on the book, available here
  • Via In Custodia Legis: word that the Law Library of Congress will commemorate Constitution Day with a book talk by Michael Klarman (Harvard Law). The event will take place at 1:00 p.m. on September 12.
  • For readers in and around the New York City, we have word of another book talk of interest: the New York chapter of The American Constitution Society and the New York Legal Assistance Group will host Richard Rothstein to discuss The Color of Law. The event is scheduled for 5:30 p.m. on September 13. (h/t: Torts Today)
