Given its singular academic position as an independent research institution at the forefront of global legal history, the Max Planck Institute for European Legal History (Frankfurt, Germany) has been at the forefront of this emerging direction in scholarship. Since October 2015, it has embarked on a new research project centred on the study of ‘Legal Transfer in the Common Law World’. Building on the Institute’s expertise in the widely established legal historical discipline within the civilian tradition, the research project’s aim in the years to come is to bring both fresh and external perspectives on Common Law transplants around the world, focusing on its overall as well as its localised manifestations. 

In collaboration with the Birkbeck’s Centre for Critical European Law, Prof. Stefan Vogenauer and his department from Max Planck will present the individual research projects.
