Comparative Legal History is an international and comparative review of law and history. It was established in 2013, and it is the official journal of the European Society for Comparative Legal History.
The Journal welcomes articles, which explore ‘internal’ legal history (doctrinal and disciplinary developments in the law) or ‘external’ legal history (legal ideas and institutions in wider contexts). Rooted in the complexity of the various Western legal traditions worldwide, the articles can also investigate other laws and customs from around the globe. Comparisons may be either temporal or geographical, and both legal and other law-like normative traditions will be considered.
Scholarship on comparative and trans-national historiography, including trans-disciplinary approaches, is particularly welcome.
