Weekend Roundup

  • In Indian constitutionalism, the rule of law, and Parsi legal culture, Indian Law Review, former LHB co-moderator Mitra Sharafi, Wisconsin Law, argues that Parsi legal culture did not just benefit Zoroastrians in the late colonial era; it “also played an underacknowledged role in the constitutional life of modern India, helping nationalists pivot from extra-legal resistance to the business of running a state."
  • "The Florida Supreme Court Historical Society is seeking judges, lawyers, law teachers, and other citizens to serve on its board of trustees" (Florida Bar News).
  • In honor of DC Emancipation Day, the Supreme Court Historical Society will host a virtual lecture with Manisha Sinha on the abolitionist origins of Civil War constitutionalism and emancipation on April 17, 2023, at Noon EDT.  Register here.
