A translation of Professor Richard Weisberg's Law and Literature study The Failure of the Word will be published by Suhrkamp in Berlin in mid-February under the title Rechtsgeschichten, with an afterword by Bernhard Schlink and a coda taken from part of Weisberg's Poethics.    


Professor Weisberg has been appointed to a planning board on Law and Literature associated with the Modern Language Association.


In Paris, Profesor Weisberg and Professor Eric Freedman have just published in the Revue Administrative a study of the uses of equity in the commission charged with Vichy-related reparations: "L'Equite et la Commission d'Indemnisation des Victimes de Spoliation."
