More good news for Osgoode Hall Law School: Philip Girard, who has been a visitor at the Centre of Criminology and Sociolegal Studies at the University of Toronto while on sabbatical leave this year from the Schulich School of Law at Dalhousie University, will spend next year as the James L. Lewtas Visiting Professor at Osgoode. His book Lawyers and Legal Culture in British North America: Beamish Murdoch of Halifax will be launched by the Osgoode Society in August. Philip, Jim Phillips and Blake Brown are continuing work on their major project "Canadian Legal History, 1500-2000." Philip and Jim's piece "Rethinking 'the Nation' in National Legal History: A Canadian Perspective" will appear in the upcoming spring issue of the Law and History Review.
Editor's Note: Yes, I know that the blog has been more than a bit Osgoode and Toronto-centric. We would be happy to publish news from all over--email us at the addresses in the right hand column!
