Comparative Legal History is an international and comparative review of law and history.

Articles will 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 will 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.

The Editors welcome scholarly submissions in the English language.

The optimal length for articles is between 7500 to 15000 words, including footnotes. Shorter submissions will be considered for our 'Short Articles' section. All articles are submitted to double blind peer review.

Book reviews will generally range from 1500 to 2500 words. Review articles will also be considered.

The journal is published, both online and in print, twice a year, appearing in the spring and the autumn.

Comparative Legal History is the official journal of the European Society for Comparative Legal History (ESCLH, http://esclh.blogspot.com/).
