Recently two of our members, Diane Kirkby and John McLaren, were made Honorary Fellows of the American Society for Legal History. This is a significant honour. Diane is only the second Australasian recipient. Three people are honoured each year and it was fabulous to have both Diane and John recognised in the same year (the third was Dirk Hartog!). Amanda Nettlebeck, Alecia Simmonds and myself (Shaunnagh Dorsett) were incredibly fortunate to be there for the awards ceremony. The photo (courtesy of Amanda) is (from left to right): Constance Backhouse, Shaunnagh Dorsett, Diane Kirkby, John McLaren and Mike Grossberg (the outgoing president of the ASLH).
