BOOK: On the historical method in legal science (de Laboulaye/Halpérin)
Nomôdos signals the new edition of Édouard-René Lefebvre de Laboulaye (1811-1883)'s seminal article "On the historical method in legal science, and its future", written at the occasion of the Revue historique de droit français et étranger's first issue in 1855.
Jean-Louis Halpérin, professor at the École Normale Supérieure and one of the most renowned and prolific French legal historians, comes back on de Laboulaye's manifesto and turns it into a text suitable to the challenges of legal history in our own age. Both texts combined fill 88 pages in the Tirés à part-collection of the legal editor Dalloz. The work can be purchased for € 15 (ISBN 9782247126552).
