International Lawman's Brut Society and the Early Middle English Society

The International Lawman's Brut Society and the Early Middle English Society invite proposals for 20-minute papers on "The Law in Early Middle English Literature" for the next International Medieval Congress in Kalamazoo, May 2011. As the first element of Lawman's name is "Law," laws and legal proceedings are understandably an important part of the Brut and of other major texts of the early middle English corpus.
