Law and History
Each year, special events give law/history joint degree students the opportunity to expand their learning and network with others interested in their field. For example:
- Law School Legal History Workshop: Law and history students can enroll for credit, and may attend workshop without enrolling in associated course. Also attended by interested faculty from across the university.
- Humanities Center Workshops: The Humanities Center hosts a range of workshops, many of which often or occasionally address issues of legal history. Workshops include the Seminar on the Enlightenment and Revolution and Approaches to Capitalism.
- Political Theory Workshops: The Political Science Department hosts workshops relating to the law.
Workshops invite legal historians (from both law schools and history departments) to present their works-in-progress for discussion and critique by faculty and students in attendance. Students have the opportunity to learn about cutting-edge scholarship and become part of the wider Stanford-based, national, and international legal-history communities.
