His books include The Origins of Adversary Criminal Trial (2003), History of the Common Law: The Development of Anglo-American Legal Institutions (with R. Lerner & B. Smith, 2009), and Pension & Employee Benefit Law (with D. Pratt & S. Stabile, 5th ed. 2010). Professor Langbein was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 1987. He is an honorary fellow of Trinity Hall, Cambridge, and a corresponding fellow of the British Academy.
