Early English Laws Project

The Early English Laws project is pleased to announce its next event:

Editing the Medieval Laws of England

Date: 24 October 2009
Location: Institute of Historical Research
Description: The Institute of Historical Research, London, will be hosting a free one-day workshop which will bring together established academics and postgraduate students with an interest in early English laws.

The workshop will facilitate discussion about editing the various legal codes, edicts, manuals and treatises composed in England before the issuing of Magna Carta in 1215. It aims to provide participants with an opportunity to share and discuss their ideas about methodology and issues such as digitisation and linguistics in a friendly, informal atmosphere. This event will offer project presentations and demonstrations as well as practical sessions on editing and presenting the laws in the digital age.
