The Oxford International Encyclopedia of Legal History is a comprehensive, international, interdisciplinary reference work that includes approximately 1,000 articles on all aspects of legal history throughout the world from ancient to modern times. Articles deal with private law, public law, and constitutional/higher law throughout the world and are written and signed by one of the many noteworthy contributors, which include major scholars and experts.

For years, scholars have been investigating the remote origins of their respective national and religious law. Only recently has their been a developing interest in and study of the history of law in modern times. This encyclopedia will bring together the study of ancient law as well as the study of modern law--examining statutes and administrative rulings as well as judicial decisions, legislatures, agencies and courts.

The Encyclopedia will cover ancient, medieval, and modern law in eight legal traditions and geographical/cultural areas: Ancient Greek Law, Ancient Roman Law, Chinese Law, English Common Law, Islamic Law, Medieval Roman Law, United States Law, and law in other regions (Africa, Latin America, and South Asia among them). It will address major categories of law within these traditions, including private law (contract, tort, civil procedure), varieties of public law (criminal law, administrative law, statutory law), and higher law/constitutional law. It will be the first encyclopedia of law to provide historical and contemporary comparisons of world legal systems.
