  • Call for papers: Recognition and enforcement of foreign judgments: problems and prospects

    2020-06-08

    The modern period of the development of civilization is known to increasingly impart the character of imperativeness to the principle of cooperation between states, transforming its initially basically declarative formula of relations between states into an imperative content, fixed as obligations of the states to ensure the right to a fair hearing not only at the level of formal access to justice, but also at the level of enforcement of judgments as the highest manifestation of justice in the state organization of social management.

  • Call for papers: Private law of the Republic of Korea

    2020-05-09

    The year 2020 marks the 30th anniversary of the establishment of diplomatic ties between the Russian Federation and the Republic of Korea. During the past three decades relations between the two neighboring countries developed vigorously in many fields. However in the field of jurisprudence the exchange of ideas and cooperation in organizing various academic programs between Russia and Korea leaves much to be desired. For this reason Russian and Korean jurists know very little about each other which in turn makes it difficult to further develop relations. The growth in trade and economic relations creates increasing demand for the knowledge of private law and especially civil law of each other’s country. Therefore there is much practical importance in studying the civil law of the partner country.

  • Call for papers: Private Law in the XXI century

    2020-04-22

    We live in a revolutionary time. Technology forces us to reconsider the traditional concepts of the private law. The development of the commerce with the digital contents forces us to have a fresh look on the established categories. In Europe, the property law differs immensely – the different legal traditions offer quite different framework for the concept of ownership and the property law. The disappearing border between tangible goods and various kinds of intangibles make us think about the future development of the property law. We are also facing a change in the business models. The sale is losing its central role, being substituted by various kinds of other contracts, securing the access to the goods. It may also have an impact on the property law ‘s future shape. The coronavirus, however, has shaken the economy and how far it would influence the direction of development prior to this crisis could and should be a matter of the discussion.
