Welcome to the website of the Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society.

Members of the society include historians, lawyers, academics and others interested in the areas of law and history. Most of the members live in Australia or New Zealand, but their areas of interest are not confined to the law in those places.

Membership of the society offers a chance to keep up with the latest news updates about events, opportunities and publications in the field.

The Society also runs an annual conference, publishes the fully-refereed journal law&history and offers a number of prizes and scholarships.
