About the Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society

The Australian and New Zealand Law and History Society (ANZLHS) is an interdisciplinary group of scholars who share an interest in the connections between law and history. Members include historians, lawyers, and other academics, as well as those interested in history and the law.


The ANZLHS was established in 1993, emerging from the annual Law in History Conferences which began in 1982.

The ANZLHS thanks the University of Southern Queensland, especially UniSQ College, the School of Law and Justice, and the School of Humanities and Communication, for hosting the Annual Conference in 2023.
