The internationalization and globalization of the law has been one of the greatest challenges to the modern nation state. The Maastricht Treaty 1992 emphasized the diversities of the member-states in the EU regarding language, history and culture. In late modern jurisprudence the disciplines leagal history and comparative law, representing the perspectives of time and space within the law, have increasingly interacted towards a merge. In Europe as well as in the U.S. the field of comparative legal history has been introduced in teh curriculum at many law schools, and the need is great for theoretical and methodological discourses and for class materials in this field.
