The American Society of Comparative Law (ASCL), formerly the American Association for the Comparative Study of Law, is a society dedicated to the study of comparative law, foreign law, and private international law.[1] It was founded in 1951, and was admitted to American Council of Learned Societies in 1995.[2]

The American Journal of Comparative Law is published quarterly by ASCL. It was established at the University of Michigan Law School[3] in 1952, where ASCL Vice President and first Editor-in-Chief Hessel E. Yntema was a professor. Yntema served as EIC until his death in 1966. The journal moved from Michigan to the University of California, Berkeley, in 1971,[4] but returned in 2003.
