Law scholar presents paper at medieval conference

June 06, 2011

Jonathan Rose, Willard H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar at the Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law, presented his paper “Lordship, Loyalty & Maintenance 1300-1500” at the 46th International Congress on Medieval Studies in Kalamazoo, Michigan, on May 12-15.

Rose presented his paper during a panel entitled, “Law as Culture: Lords, Land, and Property.” The conference, held at the Western Michigan University, is one of the largest medieval conferences with more than 3,000 scholars attending annually.

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.
