Law and History Review's Docket is looking for a book reviewer for a book on early modern English legal history. We cannot compensate, but can offer a copy of the book (e or print) and 1000 words with no paywall. DM if interested or email lhrdocketeditor at gmail

For what it’s worth, some problems have thrown up their own new forms of legal scholarship. I’m thinking here about how the new doctrinal interest in history led to that section on applied legal history in @TheDocketLHR and now this new journal: https://jach.law.wisc.edu

Apologies for the issue with Direct Messages, which is now resolved!

One final article for the special issue is Dr. Deborah Dinner's powerful reflections on the problem of originalist history in Dobbs.
