Weekend Roundup

  • “The Managers of the F.W. Maitland Memorial Fund are able to offer one Studentship for Home/EU, or Overseas/Islands students applying to undertake doctoral research in legal history at the University of Cambridge, starting in October 2018. Studentships are tenable in the Faculty of Law, the Faculty of History, or the Faculty of English.”  More.
  • Bonnie J. Shucha, the Deputy Director of the University of Wisconsin Law Library, has posted Badger State Infamy: Wisconsin's Early Sex Trade, which appears in the Wisconsin Lawyer (October 2017): 22-26.  It “describes the early sex trade in northern Wisconsin. Alarmed by numerous newspaper reports of sex trafficking, concerned citizens pressed the governor, state legislators, and law enforcement officials to rein in the booming sex trade. Results were mixed, but the efforts in Wisconsin were only the first of many to protect vulnerable adults and children from human trafficking, attempts that continue to the present day.”
  • We have word of a call for participants for Forum Precedente Law Review 2018, “Justice Crisis and Legal Education in Colombia,” on April, 12, 2018, at Icesi University, Cali, Colombia.  The full call is here.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
