Law professor delivers paper at University of Winchester

August 29, 2012

Professor Jonathan Rose, Willard H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar at the College of Law, will deliver a paper at The Fifteenth Century Conference, Sept. 5, at the University of Winchester in Winchester, England.

The title of the paper is “Understanding the Law of Maintenance,” part of a medieval English legal history project on which Rose has been working for several years.

After spending most of his career focusing on antitrust, regulation and legal ethics, Rose changed direction. His primary scholarly interests now involve medieval and early modern English legal history, and his research focuses on the history and regulation of the legal profession and the operation of the medieval legal system. Rose has also written on early defamation law, medieval prisons, and the historiography of legal history.
