Law and History
The legal history workshop presents a wide range of topics, research questions, and methodological issues. The course will mainly consist of weekly meetings in which leading scholars from Israel and abroad will discuss their works-in-progress. Participants will gain insight into the mechanics and dilemmas of legal history research and writing, exposure to current trends in the field, and experience in critiquing scholarship effectively and fairly. In addition to being graded on class participation, students will be required to write several short (2-page) critiques of the articles.
