  • "The Arizona Board of Regents named Robert A. Williams, Jr. Regents’ Professor, the highest faculty honor awarded at Arizona’s public universities.”  He is the author of many works on American Indians and the law, including The American Indian in Western Legal Thought:  The Discourses of Conquest (1990).  More.
  • The final schedule for the Policy History Conference is here.
  • ICYMI: The law of spreading false news in the Massachusetts Bay Colony. 
  • Some Updates.  (We’ve been traveling and have a few more than is our norm.) Last Tuesday, at an event sponsored by the Supreme Court Historical Society, Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg asked Richard Primus and Randy Barnett how each would have decided Loving v. Virginia?  Their answers on SCOTUSblog.
  • Also, Program Committee Chair Claire Potter and Co-Chair Brian Ogilvie preview the annual meeting in Chicago, January 3-6, 2019.  It will include an ASLH-sponsored panel or two showcasing doctoral candidates and recent hires in legal history.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
