CMRS Distinguished Visiting Scholar Neil McLeod on Medieval Irish Law

October 31, 2012 at 4:00 pm - November 1, 2012 at 4:00 pm

CMRS and the UCLA Department of English invite you to Distinguished Visiting Scholar Lectures by Neil McLeod (School of Law, Murdoch University, Perth)

Wednesday, October 31, 2012 in Royce 314 at 4:00 pm

Medieval Irish law was produced by lawyers, not by kings. It was hundreds of years ahead of its time. In this talk, Professor McLeod focuses on the legal consequences of homicide and injury in medieval Irish law.

Thursday, November 1, 2012 in Royce 236 at 4:00 pm

The Lord of Slaughter was a professional hitman of noble status. His job was to travel into hostile kingdoms and take revenge for crimes committed against his countrymen. By examining literary accounts of his role, Professor McLeod brings clarity to the obscure description found in the law-tract, Críth Gablach.
