A new era for AJLH
The American Journal of Legal History was founded in 1957 and was the first English-language periodical in the field. The journal is now published by Oxford University Press. Its new editors are Professors Al Brophy (University of North Carolina School of Law, Chapel Hill) and Stefan Vogenauer (Max Planck Institute for European Legal History, Frankfurt).
The new AJLH aims to publish outstanding scholarship on all facets and periods of legal history. While retaining its focus on American legal history, it accommodates the enormous broadening of the intellectual horizon of the discipline over the past decade and is particularly interested in contributions of a comparative, international or transnational nature. Book reviews are a regular feature.
The new AJLH is a quarterly, peer-reviewed journal, made available in printed and electronic form. Manuscript submissions are handled quickly and efficiently. Manuscripts concurrently submitted for publication elsewhere will not be considered. Accepted papers that have been copyedited and typeset are made available online immediately through the ‘Advance Access’ function on the OUP website.
