Weekend Roundup

  • The Law & Political Economy blog has been running a series (called "1LPE") on what it would mean to teach courses in the first-year law school curriculum from a law and political economy perspective. Perhaps not surprisingly, lessons from history are crucial. See, for example, this recent post by Michelle Wilde Anderson (Stanford Law School) on Property Law and the creation of the racial wealth gap. See also this post, by Kali Murray (Marquette University Law School), on "teaching from narrative" and how she makes use of the diary of an antebellum African-American abolitionist.
  • From the American Political Development blog A House DividedCalvin TerBeek on "how conservatives embraced the Bill of Rights and incorporation."
  • Max Planck Institute for European Legal History has issued a call  for Postdoctoral and Research Scholarships 2020.  Deadline 31st May 2019.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
