McCurdy Fellowship in Legal History at the Miller Center and School of Law.
"During a 40-year career in the Corcoran Department of History and the School of Law, Charles McCurdy has been the intellectual and pedagogical heart of legal history at the University of Virginia," said UVA law professor Risa Goluboff, a legal history scholar who is co-organizing the conference.
