Congratulations to Osgoode Society associate editor and Osgoode Hall Law School Professor Philip Girard, who advises that he has accepted the offer of the American Society for Legal History to give the plenary address to the November 6-9, 2014 annual meeting in Denver Colorado.
This is a huge honour, and wonderful recognition of Philip as one of the most distinguished legal historians in North America.
The ASLH has a great track record of including Canadians on panels: the deadline for submitting papers has passed, but let's hope many presenters (as well as non-presenters!) will be on hand to hear Philip's address, and to enjoy the conference, which is always a terrific experience.
Here's the general info on the meeting.. Registration is now open. Early bird registration for members is US$200.00, US$75.00 for students.
Membership in the association is available online. Note that membership dues are graded according to income, and it's an especially good deal for students, who pay only US$15.00. Membership entitles you to a year's subscription to the leading legal history journal, Law and History Review, access to past issues, and a discount on books in the Studies in Legal History series and annual meeting registration.
