Welcome

The forum historiae iuris is the first internet journal for legal history in Europe.

The forum historiae iuris, established in 1996 as the first European electronic Journal for History of Law, takes its name seriously: It aims to be a forum for legal history(s) in the colorfulness and diversity, which implicate the subject. It represents the amplitude of the historical research of law in Europe - across epochs, regions and language barriers. In the part journal it publishes articles, reviews and debates; in the forum it indicates messages, research projects and journals. Changing editors point out in their editorial on current priorities.

EDITORIAL

Welcome to the new forum historiae iuris

In recent decades, legal history has increasingly abandoned its national heritage, transforming into an international discipline, and acquiring new tones of globalization and comparative methodology. Our discipline is moving forward. This is precisely one of the reasons, in addition to general budget cuts, why disciplines such as legal history, comparative law and legal theory face attacks. These are the legal disciplines, which could play a crucial part in preparing the legal world for the on-going changes: linking the local to the global, the regional to the national, and the national to the global. Instead of cuts, these theoretical disciplines deserve rather more than less funds.
