Whilst the focus of this project is very much upon the legislation of England and Wales, the Imperial contexts of British law are also of great importance. Hence, this collection of legal materials relating to territories conquered and colonised by the British.
In the main these list are of volumes of statutes; but I have also added a bibliography of manuals for Justices of the Peace, handy guides to the practice of law at the local level, the most important collection of historic case law, namely the English Reports, and links to bibliographies of the State Trials.
These pages are in the main Zotero bibliographies compiling digitized volumes of statutes from around the world. In other cases, it is a collection of links to other available sources, often official websites of legal institutions.
In future, I may add non-English language, and non-Common Law sources. But this is not a priority right now.
