Weekend Roundup

  • Orville Vernon Burton and Armand Derfner discuss their book Justice Deferred: Race and the Supreme Court on Illinois Public Radio.
  • Twitter--or at least our portion of it--is abuzz with news of a website at Rutgers University that is chock full of documents on state constitutions, which we gather is the work of G. Alan Tarr.  H/t: Julian Davis Mortenson and Rachel Sheldon.  It contains "scanned constitutions, convention records, and legislative materials for the historical constitutions of all 50 states." 
  • The NEH summer institute, "Law and Culture in Medieval England" was hosted virtually by Western Michigan University over the summer. You can check out the schedule and readings listed here.
  • Nicholas Bagley and Gary Lawson debate administrative law before the Notre Dame Student Chapter of the Federalist Society. (You might want to skip the first 9 minutes to avoid the tiresome pugilist metaphors.)
Weekend Roundup is a weekly feature compiled by all the Legal History bloggers.
