The Society sponsors a quarterly journal, the Law and History Review, and a book series, Studies in Legal History.

Studies in Legal History

Book Series

The series aims to publish the highest quality work in legal history by both junior and senior scholars. Our goal is to produce monographs that take a variety of methodological and theoretical approaches, but always with respect for historical and legal change. The series is dedicated to the understanding of law as both a product of and contributor to history.
