Georgetown Legal History Colloquium, 2019-2020

I and my co-convener, Anne Fleming, Georgetown University Law Center, would like to announce the Georgetown Legal History Colloquium and its 2019-2020 schedule.  This works-in-progress seminar meets from 3:30-5:00 on selected Fridays and is open to interested faculty, students, and independent or government historians beyond Georgetown.  We especially invite those in the greater Washington, DC, area to write me at to get on our reminder and distribution list.
