Since English Legal History will not be offered this year and may not be offered next year, I would like to give students an opportunity to read something about English Legal History. I've chosen selections from Pollock and Maitland, "History of English Law Before the Time of Edward I". The book is old, but it's a classic, and beautifully written. We'll spend some time talking about areas in which our vision of English legal history no longer matches that of Pollock and Maitland.

Subject Areas: International, Comparative & Foreign Law , Legal History .
