Jonathan Rose
Professor Jonathan Rose, a Willard H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar at the College of Law, recently chaired a panel on Latin American Legal History at the Annual Conference of the American Society for Legal History in Miami.

The panel was titled “The Gestation of Science and Practice of Law in Latin America during the Nineteenth Century: Assessing the Interplay of Constitutions, Codes, and Procedure,” and included panelists from Universities in Brazil, Columbia, New York and the Netherlands.

After spending most of his career focusing on antitrust, regulation and legal ethics, Rose changed direction. His primary scholarly interests now involve medieval and early modern English legal history, and his research focuses on the history and regulation of the legal profession and the operation of the medieval legal system. Rose has also written on early defamation law, medieval prisons, and the historiography of legal history.
