At the 125th AGM of the Selden Society held last month in the Old Hall of Lincoln’s Inn, Emeritus Professor Wilfrid Prest was nominated and elected a member of that body’s governing Council, in the category ‘Members not domiciled in the United Kingdom’. The Adelaide Law School wishes to congratulate him on this achievement.
Founded in 1887, ‘To Encourage the Study and Advance the Knowledge of the History of English Law’, the Selden Society has over 1500 institutional and individual members worldwide. Its main scholarly activity is the publication of original documents, the reprinting or editing of works of rarity or importance, and the compiling of information as a tool for further research.
