The President of the American Society for Legal History, Prof. Sarah Barringer Gordon (Penn Law), has appointed Prof. M.C. Mirow chair of the Stein Book Award Committee for a term of three years.

The Stein Award is named in memory of Peter Gonville Stein, BA, LLB (Cantab), PhD (Aberdeen); QC; FBA, Honorary Fellow, ASLH, and eminent scholar of Roman law at the University of Cambridge.
