General course Description:
(Same as HISTORY 307A). The Legal History Workshop is designed as a forum in which faculty and students from both the Law School and the History Department can discuss some of the best work now being done in the field of legal history. Every other week, an invited speaker presents his or her current research for discussion. Speakers are chosen not only for the quality of their work, but also with the aim of exposing students to a broad array of topics and methodologies within legal history. In the week prior to a given speaker's presentation, the class meets as a group to discuss secondary literature relevant to understanding and critiquing the speaker's research. Students then read the speaker's paper in advance of the following week's workshop presentation.
Course Style: A Substantive/ Perspective course looks at law from an external or non-traditional standpoint.
