A complete history of Danish law in English is not available. However many topics from Danish legal history have in later times been exposed in English. This book was originally meant as a bibliography to help finding out what is written by mostly Danish Legal historians in other European languages on Danish law. I found it useful to combine such a bibliography with a series of my articles on selected topics of the History of Danish law from the middle ages till our times.Here are the contents:

How Nordic are the Old Nordic Laws?
