Rose publishes chapter in book on historical law

Professor Jonathan Rose, a Willard H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar at the College of Law, recently contributed a chapter to a textbook, “Law and Disputing in the Middle Ages: Proceedings of the Ninth Carlsberg Academy Conference on Medieval Legal History 2012.”

His chapter, “The Law of Maintenance and The Obligations of Lordship: A Case Study,” explores the duties of nobility during the Middle Ages and the formal and practical sides of dispute settlements, as well as various disputing strategies.

The book contains the proceedings of the conference “Law and Disputing in the Middle Ages,” held in May 2012 at the Carlsberg Academy in Copenhagen. It includes articles from an international group of scholars of various aspects of disputing, not only from legal but also sociological and historical perspective in the Middle Ages.

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.
