  • Kim, M.S.-H., Law and Custom in Korea: Comparative Legal History, New York, NY, Cambridge University Press, 2012.

    Kim, M.S.-H., Law and Custom in Korea: Comparative Legal History, New York, NY, Cambridge University Press, 2012.

    This book sets forth the evolution of Korea's law and legal system from the Chos n dynasty through the colonial and postcolonial modern periods. This is the first book in English that comprehensively studies Korean legal history in comparison with European legal history, with particular emphasis on customary law. Korea's passage to Romano-German civil law under Japanese rule marked a drastic departure from its indigenous legal tradition. The transplantation of modern civil law in Korea was facilitated by Japanese colonial jurists who created a Korean customary law; this constructed customary law served as an intermediary regime between tradition and the demands of modern law. The transformation of Korean law by the forces of Westernisation points to new interpretations of colonial history and presents an intriguing case for investigating the spread of law on a global level. In-depth discussions of French customary law and Japanese legal history also provide a solid conceptual framework suitable for comparing European and East Asian legal traditions.

  • Watkin, T.G., The Legal History of Wales, Cardiff, University of Wales Press, 2012.

    Watkin, T.G., The Legal History of Wales, Cardiff, University of Wales Press, 2012.
    Wales has been served by a variety of legal systems and laws over the last two millennia. These include the civil law of Rome, which was to be the basis of the laws of much of modern Europe, and the English common law, which was to govern much of the English-speaking world. Alongside these influences, the customs of the native Welsh people maintained an important role not only until Wales was united legally with England in the 16th century but through to the 19th century abolition of Wales's own law courts, the Great Sessions. Since then, the separate legal identity of Wales as witnessed by its legal history has played a significant part in the rise of national consciousness and the emergence of new, distinctly Welsh, legal institutions, such as the National Assembly, at the end of the 20th century. This book traces the various strands of Wales's legal history from its beginnings, identifying and assessing the importance of native Welsh, Roman and English influences to Wales's legal social identity.

  • Musson, A. and C. Stebbings (eds.), Making Legal History: Approaches and Methodologies, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012.

    Musson, A. and C. Stebbings (eds.), Making Legal History: Approaches and Methodologies, Cambridge, Cambridge University Press, 2012.

    Drawing together leading legal historians from a range of jurisdictions and cultures, this collection of essays addresses the fundamental methodological underpinning of legal history research. Via a broad chronological span and a wide range of topics, the contributors explore the approaches, methods and sources that together form the basis of their research and shed light on the complexities of researching into the history of the law. By exploring the challenges posed by visual, unwritten and quasi-legal sources, the difficulties posed by traditional archival material and the novelty of exploring the development of legal culture and comparative perspectives, the book reveals the richness and dynamism of legal history research.
