Speaker Series' Begin for the 2012-13 year

On Thursday, August 23, 2012, the College of Law will co-host, along with the Louisiana Supreme Court Historical Society, a lecture by Catherine MacMillan, Reader in Legal History at Queen Mary, University of London, and a Visiting Fellow at the Institute for Advanced Legal Studies, London.  Dr.
MacMillan's lecture is entitled "Judah P. Benjamin: The Early English Career of an American Political Exile." 

Dr. MacMillan is a highly regarded legal historian and the author of the recently published Mistakes in Contract Law (Hart Publishing), a history of doctrine of contractual mistake in English law in which Benjamin's contributions to this development are examined. She is currently at work on a legal biography of Benjamin.

The lecture will take place in Room 344, from 12:30 to 2:00 pm.  Lunch will be provided.

Please join us for what should be a stimulating lecture. We will be joined by some members of the Louisiana Supreme Court Historical Society, including Donna D. Fraiche, one of our most loyal alumna, who serves as President of the society.

** While this is not a library specific lecture we thought our followers would be interested in this opportunity.
