[We have two announcements from the American Society for Legal History for M.A. students, Ph.D. students, and law students whose interests include legal history. DRE]
Student Research Colloquium: The ASLH invites graduate students to apply to the Student Research Colloquium (SRC), currently scheduled (fingers crossed) for Nov. 11-12, in Chicago, Illinois, immediately prior to the ASLH annual meeting there. At this pre-conference, funded workshop, eight graduate students will discuss their in-progress research projects with each other and with distinguished legal historians. Target applicants include early-post-coursework Ph.D. students and historically minded law students. To apply, electronically submit the following four items to John Wertheimer at: firstname.lastname@example.org: a CV; a cover letter describing, among other things, how many years remain in your course of graduate study; a two-page, single-spaced Research Statement that begins with a title and describes the in-progress project that you propose to present to the colloquium; and a letter of recommendation from a faculty member, sent separately from the other materials. The application deadline is June 15, 2020. For more information, click this link.
Graduate Student Survey: The ASLH regards graduate students as an important part of our legal history community. We are proud of our efforts to date to make the ASLH a hospitable home for early-stage scholars. But we want to do better. Among other things, we want to enhance the presence of international graduate students in the organization. Accordingly, we are gathering information that will help us to make the society an even more inclusive place for early-stage legal historians. If you are a graduate student or a historically minded law student, please click this link to take a short survey in English, Spanish, or Portuguese, as you choose. We appreciate your time and hope to see you at the annual meeting in Chicago!
