Southern Legal Studies

This series—formerly known as Studies in the Legal History of the South—explores the ways in which law has affected the development of the southern United States and, in turn, the ways the history of the South has affected the development of American law. Each volume in the series focuses on a specific aspect of the law, such as slave law or civil-rights legislation; a specific southern case that has broader legal and cultural influence in the nation, both historically and in contemporary times; or on a larger topic of historical significance to the development of the legal system in the region, such as issues of constitutional history and of law and society, comparative analyses with other legal systems, and biographical studies of influential southern jurists and lawyers.

We are currently not accepting new submissions to the series.
