Some News from the Centre for Legal History

With autumn and the start of the new academic year, it is appropriate to catch up with some news of the summer. Matthew Cleary has been successfully examined on his Ph.D. thesis, “Testamentary Law in England, c. 1450-1540”. His primary supervisor was Dr Rossi. Matthew is currently a Senior Research Fellow on the Heisenberg Project: Grotius Census Bibliography at the Max-Planck Institute for Comparative Public Law and International law at the University of Heidelberg. For part of the summer we had the pleasure of a visit from Professor Tom McSweeney of the School of Law of the College of William and Mary.
