The Law and History Program of Study held its first faculty/student lunch on 11/20, hosted by Morton Horwitz, Charles Warren Professor of American Legal History, Emeritus, and Kenneth Mack, Lawrence D. Biele Professor of Law. The lunch brought together students from Harvard Law School and from the departments of History and Classics at the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. At the lunch, participants discussed their interests in both research and legal practice, as well as current directions in legal history (touching on the transnational turn and on American history since World War II) and advice for navigating the academic job market. They suggested that aspiring legal historians should develop a focus in some substantive area of law in addition to training in the methods and literature of legal history.
