I've blogged a couple of times about the year-long Law & Custom Program going on at Duke Law School this year. We kicked off the program with a series of summer reading group sessions, and followed that up with a (still ongoing) workshop series in which scholars from around the country will present work relating to law and custom. You can find a full list of readings and resources, speakers, and faculty scholarship on the topic here.
This afternoon, we begin our symposium on Law & Custom which has a great line up of internal speakers and commenters. The papers so far look interesting and cut across a wide range of subject matters, so I'm looking forward to the event. I'm impressed with how many of our colleagues have joined in this dialogue (if you recall from my first post on this topic, the goal was to build a continuing academic dialogue at the law school that was broad enough to include large segments of the faculty and, eventually, other folks on campus as well).
The symposium flyer is below. If you happen to be in the neighborhood, drop on by, especially for the particularly interesting Kieran Healy-Kim Krawiec-Arti Rai presentation on organ donation and NEAD chains this afternoon.
