Weekend Roundup

  • Over at the New Books Network, legal historians are in the spotlight: you'll find conversations with former guest bloggers Sarah Seo (Iowa Law) and Sam Erman (USC) on their recent books Policing the Open Road and Almost Citizens, respectively; also conversations with University of Virginia law professor Jessica Lowe, on her new book Murder in the Shenandoah, and her UVA colleague Cynthia Nicoletti, on her 2017 book Secession on Trial.
  • Speaking of UVA, should the University rename the Alderman library? A Law Library summer intern makes the case.
  • Former US Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli, Jr.'s Jackson Lecture at Chautauqua Institution and an interview by the Robert H. Jackson Center are here and here.
  • The Historical Society of the District of Columbia Circuit's series based on its oral history collection continues with posts on Samuel Dash, Bernard Nordlinger, and Judge Reggie Walton.
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
