Legally Binding: Fine and Historic Bindings from the Yale Law Library

  • (All day)
  • Level L2, Law Library

Many of the historic volumes in the Lillian Goldman Law Library are significant not only for their texts, but for their extraordinary bindings. Over thirty of these are featured in the Rare Book Collection's Spring 2019 exhibition, "Legally Binding: Fine and Historic Bindings from the Yale Law Library." The curators of the exhibition, Michael Laird (Michael Laird Rare Books, Lockhart, Texas) and Michael Widener (Rare Book Librarian, Yale Law Library), selected bindings for their beauty, craftsmanship, functionality, and historical significance.

FedSoc Presents: Young Scholars Preview - Josh Divine ('16) on "Statutory Federalism and Criminal Law"

  • 12:10PM to 1:00PM
  • Room 127

Josh Divine is a graduate of Yale Law School ('16) and currently Deputy Solicitor General of Missouri. He will be discussing his article entitled "Statutory Federalism in Criminal Law." Divine explores how states can influence the application of federal criminal law through the influence of state-level statutes. Divine argues that this incorporation of state law in federal law is curiously rare in federal criminal law, with consequences that include overcriminalization, and the breakdown of separation of powers that leads to a lack of external oversight for enforcement discretion.
