Rose to present at conference in Denmark

Professor Jonathan Rose, William H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar and Faculty Fellow for the Center for Law, Science & Innovation, will speak at the IX Carlsberg Academy Conference on Medieval History, “Law and Disputing in the Middle Ages,” in Copenhagen, Denmark, scheduled for May 9-11. Rose’s presentation, “Maintenance in Medieval England,” is based on his current major research project.

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.
