In Memory of Alan Rodger: A Conference on Legal History and Roman Law
Friends and colleagues of Alan Rodger will meet in his memory at the
University of Glasgow, on 7-8 September 2012, for a conference on legal
history and Roman law.
Alan Rodger, Lord Rodger of Earlsferry, wrote on legal history and Roman law
for more than forty years. He was a student of David Daube at the University
of Oxford, and remained an active and engaged scholar even as he pursued a
career as an advocate and in government, eventually serving as a Justice of
the Supreme Court of the United Kingdom.
There will be presentations on the Friday afternoon and Saturday morning, as
well as a reception and dinner on the Friday evening. The conference is
being organised by Ernest Metzger, Douglas Professor of Civil Law in the
University of Glasgow, and David Johnston QC, Axiom Advocates, Edinburgh.
Please send a note to rodgermemorial AT iuscivile.com if you are considering
attending. We will then keep you informed of arrangements. In due course
those who wish to attend the conference, with or without the reception and
dinner, will be able to register from the conference site (address above).
The speakers will include:
Tiziana J. Chiusi (Professor of Civil Law, Roman Law and Comparative Law,
University of Saarland); Michael Crawford FBA (Emeritus Professor, History,
University College London); Robin Evans-Jones (Professor of Jurisprudence,
University of Aberdeen); Joshua S. Getzler (Professor of Law and Legal
History, University of Oxford); Kenneth Reid CBE, FBA, FRSE (Professor of
