  Spring, 2013

 

I am offering both a course (for undergraduate, graduate, and law students) and course/seminar (principally for graduate and law students) this semester in Continental legal and constitutional history. Each offering is listed in both the FAS and the Law School catalogues, and you register through the registrar of your school. The requirements for the course (Medieval Studies 119, Law 42100A) are a bit different, depending on whether you are an undergraduate, a law student, or an FAS graduate student.

The basic information and requirements for undergraduates are given in the fact sheet for undergraduates. For more details on the course and its requirements, see the syllabus.

The basic information and requirements for the law students are given in the fact sheet for law students. For more details on the course and its requirements, see the syllabus.

GRADUATE STUDENTS IN THE FAS SHOULD FOLLOW THE COURSE FOR THE LAW STUDENTS.

The course/seminar is History 2080 (formerly History 2126) (Medieval Law) and Law 96705A (Legal History: Continental Legal History: Seminar) is a graduate-level reading course/seminar with short papers. It meets on Tuesdays from 5:00–7:00 in WCC 3015 . It will cover many of the same topics as this course, although in a somewhat different order and in more depth. For more information see the website: http://www.law.harvard.edu/faculty/cdonahue/courses/lhsemclh.
