The American Society for Legal History offers numerous benefits for scholars of legal
history. The society holds annual conferences to foster intellectual development in legal history worldwide. While the organization is primarily based within the United States, its membership and its scope are international.
Members receive Law & History Review, America's leading legal history journal as well as access to back issues online at the Cambridge University Press (currently from 2005 through the most recent issue) and JSTOR (currently from 1983 [the first issue] through 2006).1 The journal covers Anglo-American, Continental, ancient, and comparative legal history. Society members also enjoy a 30% discount on the regular price of books in the Studies in Legal History series.
