Central European Journal of Comparative Law (hereinafter referred to as ‘CEJCL’) wishes to be the forum of comparative research, which primarily but not exclusively intends to analyse both private and public law of European countries from the viewpoint of comparative method. We also accept manuscripts from the field of comparative political sciences. In particular CEJCL carries out research in topics and with an approach that are relevant for the countries of Central European region – Visegrád Group and the Carpathian Basin. Concerning these kinds of topics and this approach CEJCL also intends to become the determining forum of international and European law publications. CEJCL prefers thematic issues for the sake of advancing easier comparability. For CEJCL it is an important aspect to ensure ‘best practices’ for the above-mentioned groups of countries, as well as to make different legal systems available and interpretable for others, or even exemplary in the cases of good solutions.
