An Index to Common Law Festschriften

Edited by: Michael Taggert

The German word Festschrift is now the universally accepted term in legal academia for a published collection of legal essays written by several authors to honor a distinguished jurist or to mark a significant legal event. The number of Festschriften honoring common lawyers has increased enormously in the last thirty years. Until now, the numerous scholarly contributions to these volumes have not been adequately indexed. An Index to Common Law Festschriften fills that bibliographic gap. The entries included in this work refer to some 270 common law Festschriften indexed by author, subject keyword, editor, title, honor, and date. It therefore includes over 4,500 chapter entries. In addition, there are more than 1,000 entries of English language contributions to predominantly foreign language, non-common law legal Festschriften from Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden.
