On Wednesday Mach 7 at 01 pm, we will hold the eight round of our Legal History Seminars. Prof. Emanuele Conte and Prof. Sara Menzinger will coordinate the roundtable on
Consonance, Divergence and Transformation in Western Europe from the late eleventh to the thirteenth century
with Andrew Cecchinato, Will Eves, Attilio Stella e Sarah White (University of St Andrews).
The roundtable is part of the ERC project CLCLCL (Civil Law, Common Law, Customary Law), coordinated by Prof. John Hudson (University of St Andrews). The project aims to explore convergences and divergences between English Common Law, Continental Civil Law (or “Ius commune”), and the customary laws of Western Europe in 1050-1300, a vital period for legal history. Its primary objective is to disrupt simplistic English/Continental distinctions by adopting a comparative approach, crossing boundaries between regions and legal experiences and re-examining longer-term European legal developments. The event aims to present the researchers’ early findings and directions for future research on the form and function of medieval and post-medieval law from different theoretical perspectives.
