The latest issue of our society's peer-reviewed journal, Comparative Legal History, published by Routledge Law Journals, is available for free.
Routledge, on acquiring the title from Hart Publishing, sent out the following message:
Introducing Comparative Legal HistoryTable of contents:
Routledge is delighted to welcome Comparative Legal History to its expanding Law portfolio. The first issue of 2015 is now available online and is currently free to view.
Comparative Legal History is an international comparative review of law and history.
Articles explore both 'internal' legal history (doctrinal and disciplinary developments in the law) and 'external' legal history (legal ideas and institutions in wider contexts). Rooted in the complexity of the various Western legal traditions worldwide, the journal also investigates 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.
