Law School lecturer awarded prestigious Tytus Fellowship

Dr Paul du Plessis, Senior Lecturer in Civil Law and Legal History, has been awarded a Tytus Fellowship by the Department of Classics of the University of Cincinnati.

The Margo Tytus Visiting Scholars Program at the University of Cincinnati supports study and research in the Burnam Classics Library, which has one of the world's premier collections in the field of Classical Studies.

Dr du Plessis will spend the autumn semester of 2015 in Cincinnati pursuing research on Roman law and society and the methodologies of its study, on which he is internationally acknowledged as an expert.

The only obligation of a Tytus Fellow is to be in residence and pursue research.
