Following on (finally!) from the Legal Histories of the British Empire conference in Singapore in 2012, we are pleased to announce Legal History and Empires: Perspectives from the Colonised, jointly sponsored by the Faculty of Law and Faculty of Humanities and Education, University of the West Indies, Cave Hill Campus, Barbados, 11-13 July 2018. A website and CFP will be announced in the new year. But as we know July is always busy, so here is a heads up! Save the Date!
For preliminary inquires please contact Shaunnagh Dorsett (email@example.com) or Asya Ostroukh (firstname.lastname@example.org). See you there!
The society’s journal, law&history, is now available via HeinOnline and Informit. In HeinOnLine it can be found in the core Law Journals library. Australian members should note that despite its location in law the journal is also coded to history for ERA purposes. While it is easy enough to find in Hein under ‘L’, your librarian can make a direct link to it from your university library catalogue. Hard copy subscriptions can be requested to the Business Manager – Shaunnagh.Dorsett@uts.edu.au – and will cost $25 per edition. We encourage all members to submit to the journal. Watch for vol 3, coming out soon. The contents page will be available soon via the ‘Journal’ tab on the main page.
A reminder that nominations are due for the annual ANZLHS Prize in Legal History. The deadline for nominations for any work in the field of legal history in relation to Australasia and which bear the date of 2015 are due to the President or the Secretary by October 30. All further information can be found in the Rules. We look forward to your nominations!
Early bird registration for the conference has been extended to Friday 7 October. Please take advantage of this to register early.
