This volume concerns legal history turns - that is, new directions or volte-faces in legal history and its interdisciplinarity. Legal history turns include deviations from historically-situated interpretations and practices in law and legal scholarship. The papers in this volume grew from the Griffith Law School's Legal History Seminar Series, a public lecture initiative intended to contribute to the interest in legal history of the profession, judiciary, academe, and the public. Written by a cast that includes authors with internationally-impressive legal history credentials, this collection illustrates legal history turns' dynamism and diversity, and is introduced with a Foreword by The Honourable Justice Susan Kiefel AC. The papers, in the order of presentation in the collection, are:

Dr Karen Schultz on Turns' topics and optics

Professor Emeritus John McLaren on the Comparative Turn

Associate Professor Penny Crofts on the Identic Turn

Professor Mark Finnane on the Narrative Turn

Professor The Honourable William Gummow AC on the Constitutional Turn

Professor Emeritus David Saunders on the Biographical Turn

Professor Jim Phillips on the Contextual Turn
