ASLH @ AHA 2019

As an affiliated association, the American Society of Legal History may lay claim to two slots on the program of the annual meeting of the American Historical Association.  For the AHA meeting in January 2019, the ASLH finally has, with panels intended to showcase more junior legal historians.  I'm pleased to be, with Serena Mayeri, one of two chair/commentators for the panels.  Credit for organizing the panels goes to Malick Ghachem, MIT.
