25 August 2020
Networks and Connection in Legal History, co-edited by Dr Ian Williams (UCL Laws) and Professor Michael Lobban (LSE), will be published by Cambridge University Press in September.
Network and Connections in Legal History examines networks of lawyers, legislators and litigators, and how they shaped legal development in Britain and the world. The volume is a collection of papers from the British Legal History Conference 2017, which was hosted by UCL Laws.
The volume includes a chapter authored by Dr Lorenzo Maniscalco (UCL alumnus and currently Fellow in Law at Clare College, Cambridge University); and a chapter by Judith Bourne about notable UCL alumni called ‘Calling Time at the Bar: First Women Barristers and Their Networks and Connections’. The book also has a chapter about Shakespeare’s knowledge of the civil and canon law, as revealed in his plays.
The publication is planned for September 2020 – find out more on the Cambridge University Press website.
