From its modest beginnings in 1956 at a meeting of the Association of American Law Schools, the American Society for Legal History has grown substantially, until it is now recognized internationally as the leading scholarly society in law and history. Its annual meeting brings together scholars from around the world to exchange ideas and discuss the latest scholarship in law and history. Its journal, Law and History Review, and book series, Studies in Legal History, are renowned for the quality and breadth of the work they publish. The Society also encourages the work of graduate students and other young scholars through fellowship and outreach programs. It sponsors innovative workshops and conferences on specialized themes and topics and joins with its sister academic societies in other countries in promoting international scholarly exchange.
To support these activities, the Society relies on the generosity of its members, friends, and fellow travelers. Contributions may be made by mail to the following address:
