The Andrew W. Mellon Fellowship of Scholars in Critical Bibliography is sponsoring a public lecture event to explore how the materiality of legal information shapes legal education, the operation of courts, and everyday legal practice.
Organized by Lena Salaymeh, Assistant Professor at Tel Aviv University and Rare Book School-Mellon Fellow, this panel event will feature three speakers and a question-and-answer session:
- Professor Gero Dolezalek (Aberdeen), "Why did Early Modern Scots hand-write Legal Literature instead of printing it?"
- Professor Paul Halliday (University of Virginia), “Precedents are Things: Clerical Authority and the Judge's Voice in the Eighteenth Century"
- Professor Robert Berring, Jr. (Boalt), "Rethinking Legal Authority in the Digital Age"
Both the reception and the panel event are free and open to the public.
