Professor Stebbings appointed to the Council of the Selden Society

Chantal Stebbings, Professor of Law and Legal History, has been appointed to the Council of the Selden Society.

The Selden Society was founded in 1887 by Frederic William Maitland, and is the only learned society and publisher devoted entirely to English Legal History. 

It includes most of the major law and history libraries in the English-speaking world, as well as many leading national and university libraries in other countries. However most members are individuals:  lawyers and historians, including many whose interest is amateur and who support the Society because of their sense of the importance of its work.

For more information, see the Selden Society website.
