Introduction

Use this guide's homepage and General resources page as starting points, which list resources that cover multiple jurisdictions. Then check out the guide's subpages for specific jurisdictions. Keep in mind that whatever jurisdiction you are studying, it may have been influenced by multiple other legal traditions. Broadly speaking, Roman law influenced canon law, which influenced civil law and the English law of equity. English common and equitable law influenced U.S. law, which is one of many influences on Texas law. Review as many subpages as you think relevant.

See also the Current Awareness tab, to stay up to date on the latest research in legal history generally and in specific legal traditions.

Please note, access to certain databases linked in this guide may be restricted to UT Law or the UT community; please see the library's Databases page that lays out access privileges.
