The Stanford Center for Law and History is pleased to announce that Brent Salter will be its fellow for 2019-2021.

He received a LL.M. from Yale Law School, LL.B. from Macquarie University, and Arts and Commerce undergraduate degrees from the University of Sydney. He has authored and edited articles, chapters, and books on legal histories of creative communities, as well as the laws of the first colonial courts of Australia.
