The Second ESCLH Conference will take place on 9-10 July 2012 at Amsterdam and will be hosted by the VU University. Under the heading “Definitions and Challenges” it will try to delineate the landmarks which fruitful legal historical comparison requires and to trace the specific problems that a comparative-historical approach of the various branches of law may encounter (keynote address: David Ibbetson, Regius Professor of Civil Law at the University of Cambridge). Following these methodological problems, the Conference aims at presenting investigations into specific areas of law, where legal historical comparison has proven to be fruitful, viz. Fascist Criminal Law and History of Corporate Law. However, legal historians and comparatists may propose other subjects within the field of comparative legal history.
