Lord Rodger and the Dies Natalis of the Erasmus University of Rotterdam
The focus of the 98th Dies Natalis of the Erasmus University of Rotterdam is the work of the School of Law. While it has an impressive record with its blending of law, sociology and economics in its work, for this blog it is best known for its work in legal history. To mark the dies natalis, the Faculty of Law decided to award the degree of doctorate honoris causa to the late Lord Rodger of Earlsferry. Lord Rodger had accepted with pleasure. The degree will now be awarded posthumously, with the diploma accepted by his family. As well as the award of the degree, with a laudatio by Professor Laurens Winkel, two lectures will be given on the theme of empirical legal studies.
