Second Postgraduate Conference in Comparative Legal History


Second Postgraduate Conference in Comparative Legal History

Du vendredi 28 juin 2019 au samedi 29 juin 2019



The ESCLH wants to overcome the narrow nationalism and geographical segregation of legal history in contemporary European scholarship and professional organisations. The society, thus, aims to promote comparative legal history, the explicit comparison of legal ideas and institutions in two or more legal traditions. The Postgraduate Conferences of the ESCLH give advanced PhD-students and post-doctoral-researchers who work in the field of comparative legal history the opportunity to present their research to a panel of experts. Furthermore, the conference will give all participants the opportunity to build academic networks.
