American Society for Legal History

The American Society for Legal History was founded in 1956 to foster interdisciplinary scholarship and teaching in the broad field of legal history.  Although based in the United States, its purview and membership are international in scope.  The Society sponsors a quarterly journal, the Law and History Review, and a book series, Studies in Legal History, both of which are published for the Society by Cambridge University Press.

The ASLH annual conference takes place in Washington, DC from 29 October –1 Nov. The 2016 conference will be in Toronto.
