    Professor Felice Batlan's introduction to the October 2011 Chicago-Kent symposium, Women's Legal History: A Global Perspective, is now available on SSRN. The article appeared in volume 87 of the Chicago-Kent Law Review, which highlighted the symposium's presentations. Here is the abstract of Professor Batlan's introduction:

    "This essay introduces the Chicago-Kent Symposium on Women's Legal History: A Global Perspective. It seeks to situate the field of women's legal history and to explore what it means to begin writing a transnational women's history which transcends and at times disrupts the nation state. In doing so, it sets forth some of the fundamental premises of women's legal history and points to new ways of writing such histories."
