And spread the word and ask your library to stock us!!



As always, we also invite contributions: articles, review articles and book reviews.


The journal:

is a peer-reviewed international and comparative review of law and history. Its articles explore both internal legal history (doctrinal and disciplinary developments in the law) and external legal history (legal ideas and institutions in wider contexts). Firmly rooted in the complexity of the various Western legal traditions worldwide, it also provides a forum for the investigation of other laws and law-like normative traditions around the globe. Scholarship on comparative and trans-national historiography, including trans-disciplinary approaches, is particularly welcome. 


CLH has an exceptional staff and international board and is published by the forward-thinking, helpful folks at Hart Publishing.


The preface introducing the journal is available here; a sample article is available here.
