Kearley on Roman Law in Twentieth Century America

Timothy G. Kearley, University of Wyoming College of Law, is publishing From Rome to the Restatement: S.P. Scott, Fred Blume, Clyde Pharr, and Roman Law in Early Twentieth-Century America in volume 108 of the Law Library Journal (2016). Here is the abstract.
This article describes how the classical past, including Roman law and a classics-based education, influenced elite legal culture in the United States and university-educated Americans into the twentieth century and helped to encourage Scott, Blume, and Pharr to labor for many years on their English translations of ancient Roman law.
