Selden Society 2018 Lecture Series: ‘Private law’s revolutionaries: authors, codifiers and merchants?’
June 28 - June 28 | 5:15pm - 7:00pm| Free
Join the Supreme Court Library and the Selden Society Australian Chapter in June for the second lecture in the 2018 Selden Society lecture series.
Lecture presented by Professor Hector MacQueen, Edinburgh Law School.
Has there ever really been a revolution in private law, never mind the law of obligations? This lecture addresses that question by considering the relationship between law and revolution in general.
If the development of private law can be characterised as revolutionary at any point, then the revolutionaries included those who wrote about law in a systematic manner, the codifiers whose work followed on from political revolutions, and the merchants whose business needs otherwise left the law behind.
Join us for refreshments in the Portrait Gallery after the lecture.
Registrations close 26 June – please bring your ticket for quick check-in.
