What can legal history tell us about legal change in the immediate future? History does not repeat itself, but might enlighten us about the future and the possible choices that can be made. For instance the introduction of printed law will not have the same consequences as the introduction og digital law, but can still be used to detect what possible questions that might arise from a change in the technology used to communicate law. Legal history might have such an enlightening function both when society and politics change, causing law also to change, and when law is politically changed to make society change. Bringing in this element of legal futurology does not change the character of legal history as an empirically based science, mainly focused on investigating and interpretating texts of the past. However, it adds a dimension to legal history of empirically founded efforts to venture into the unknown.
