The mission of the W&L Center for Law and History (CLH) is to encourage and support the interdisciplinary study of law in its historical context. It aims to achieve that mission by bringing together scholars from W&L and throughout the world to promote research and teaching in all areas and periods of legal history. The center is focusing its immediate efforts on bringing history into dialogue with geography, particularly in the context of critical, emerging issues.
