Later this month, I will be presenting a paper entitled "The Writ of Quare Impedit and the Development of English Property Law, 1180-1250," at the American Society for Legal History annual meeting in Tempe, Arizona. In addition to my panel, "Legal Issues in Feudal Society," there are a number of other panels relating to property law, including "The Invention of Modern Anglo-American Intellectual Property Law" and "The Role of Land in National-Local Relations: A Comparative Perspective." The ASLH meeting is always an excellent forum to present work on property law (or any other subject) with a historical focus, although people tend to submit complete panels rather than individual papers. This year's conference will be held Oct. 25-28; next year's will be held Nov. 13-16 in Ottawa, Ontario. Watch for the Ottawa call for papers early next year.
