Calling all legal historians

By | 16 February 2010

I am passing on some good news in the words of Dr Donlan himself as there is quite a short deadline to get in your proposal for a paper – on dismal February days, the lure of a couple of  summer days in Valencia is extra enticing!

“The European Society for Comparative Legal History (ESCLH) is pleased to announce the creation of the Society, the launch of our blog, and our inaugural conference.

Another blog to follow!

The ESCLH aims to promote comparative legal history and seeks affiliation with individuals and organisations with complementary aims. Our blog is intended to provide a site for discussion, the sharing of information, and a Register of Legal Historians (with research interests in any area of legal history).

The ESCLH inaugural conference, ‘Law and Historical Development from a Comparative Perspective’, will be held at the University of Valencia (Spain) on 5-6 July 2010. Presentations should be in English and are welcome on any topic in comparative legal history.

Those interested in making a presentation should email Dr Seán Patrick Donlan ( by Monday, 15 March 2010 with a short (250 word) proposal. Note that the conference fee is €100; transportation and accommodation are not included.

For additional information, please contact a member of the ESCLH Executive Committee:
