H. Timothy Lovelace, Jr., a noted legal historian of the civil rights movement, will join the Duke Law faculty in June from the Indiana University Maurer School of Law, where he is a professor of law.
Lovelace, whose work examines how the civil rights movement in the United States helped to shape international human rights law, is the author of numerous articles and a forthcoming book, The World is on Our Side: The U.S. and the U.N. Race Convention (Cambridge), which examines how U.S. civil rights politics shaped the development of the International Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Racial Discrimination. He served as Duke’s John Hope Franklin Visiting Professor of American Legal History in the spring 2019 semester, when he delivered the Robert R. Wilson Lecture. He is returning to the faculty as the John Hope Franklin Research Scholar.Read on here.
Congratulations to Tim Lovelace and to Duke Law!
