Abstract: When the Chair of Jurisprudence was established at Corpus Christi College, Oxford in 1869, it was envisaged that the Professor of Jurisprudence shall lecture ‘on the history of laws and the comparative jurisprudence of different nations’.1 The job description rather nicely fit the work of its first incumbent, Sir Henry Maine. Maine’s immediate successor, Sir Frederick Pollock—in principle, at least—approved of Maine’s historical and comparative method.2 And the work of Pollock’s successor, Sir Paul Vinogradoff was steeped in it. Fast forward by a century and one finds that history is no longer integral to the kind jurisprudence coming out of Oxford.
