This volume is a selection of essays taken from the excellent range of papers presented at the British Legal History Conference hosted by the Institute for Legal and Constitutional Research at the University of St Andrews, 10-13 July 2019. The theme of the conference gives this book its title: 'comparative legal history'. The topic came easily to the organisers because of their association with the St Andrews-based European Research Council Advanced grant project 'Civil law, common law, customary law: consonance, divergence and transformation in Western Europe from the late eleventh to the thirteenth centuries'.
