2016 Pre-Conference Digital History Workshop Open for Registration

On 27 October 2016, a one-day pre-conference workshop will be held at the Osgoode Hall Law School to increase awareness of digital legal history, and encourage discussion of how digital methods and technologies can be used to analyze and present the legal past, and of new initiatives to undertake such projects.

No experience in digital history is required. Registration is required as the workshop can only accommodate 60 participants. To register, select here.
