It would be impossible to write a history of the study of Roman law in England in the second half of the 20th century without placing very considerable weight on the work of émigré legal scholars David Daube, Fritz Robert Pringsheim, and Fritz Heinrich Schulz. The study of legal history, that is, the legal history of the Middle Ages and later, was not so strongly enriched by refugee scholars. Only two made any mark: Hermann Kantorowicz and Walter Ullmann. The two men had a number of things in common. Both were remorselessly erudite scholars of the legal texts of the medieval ius commune, Kantorowicz concentrating primarily on civil law and Ullmann on canon law. Both began their careers with a particular interest in aspects of the theory and history of criminal law, though the treatments of the topic diverged markedly in their mature writings.
