CAL 3:1: The New Ancient Legal History

[Critical Analysis of Law: An International & Interdisciplinary Law Review, is out with Volume 3,, Number 1, the symposium issue The New Ancient Legal History, guest edited by Clifford Ando.]

The New Ancient Legal History gathers essays by some of the most interesting scholars in emergent areas of study in premodern law. Ancient legal systems are now attracting sophisticated study from a rising generation of interdisciplinary scholars. Their approaches are as varied as the material under study, but they share a critical engagement with the resources of contemporary legal scholarship and due regard for the evidentiary regimes that obtain in their separate fields.
