Is international law is true law

German-speaking jurisprudence since 1800 and legal pluralism

The Zeitschrift für Rechtsgeschichte (ZRG, also known as the Savigny Journal) represents an integral part of European legal history research, having made a significant contribution to the current state of the discipline. Each section publishes a new volume per year.

The division of ZRG into the Romanistische, Germanistische, and Kanonistischeteilung (since 1910) is based on the differentiation of the legal-historical subjects at that time. This is no longer self-explanatory, and in particular, Germanistic is often misunderstood. Today, the sections have the following profile:
The Romanist Department is dedicated to the entire ancient history of law and the dogmatic broadcasts to the present day,
The Canonical Department is dedicated to the entire history of ecclesiastical law, and
The German Department is dedicated to the rest of entire European legal history since late antiquity to the present day.

Regular features of the German Department are as follows: essays, guest contribution (from international research), miscellanea (as smaller research contributions), a detailed literature section, obituaries, reports and chronicles. The essays and miscellanea are preceded by an English summary. The German Department usually has 600–800 pages.
