New Society and Journal on the History of Law in Europe

Our Czech colleagues have founded (based at Brno) a European Society for History of Law: The main task of The European Society for History of Law is to support research into the of history of law, Roman law, and the history of legal thinking in different European countries. Associated with it is a new journal, published in both English and German, entitled The Journal on European History of Law (ISSN: 2042-6402), which is published in London by STS Science Centre, Ltd. The first issue of the journal has now appeared, and has a good mix of articles ranging form discussion of Franz von Zeiler, merchants in medieval Lubeck, Roman legal terminology, as well as, appropriately enough, pieces on Czech legal history. It is an impressive beginning. See
