LECTORIS SALUTATIO

Welcome to the website of the new electronic journal IUS ROMANUM! 

IUS ROMANUM is the first Bulgarian journal devoted to the research and teaching of Roman law and Roman tradition in contemporary law. The journal is published under the guidance of Malina Novkirishka-Stoyanova, Professor of Roman Private and Public Law at the University of Sofia „St. Kliment Ohridski", and of an Editorial Board, which includes Ekaterina Mateeva, professor of Civil law, and Trayan Konov, Associate Professor of Civil Law at the same university. A Scientific Council from the Sofia University, formed of professors from the Department of Theory and History of State and Law and the Department of Civil Law, is engaged to assess and approve the articles submitted for publication in the journal. The journal will be published with the support of an expanded International Scientific Council, which includes prominent scientists of the most prestigious universities in Europe and Latin America under the chairmanship of Prof. Dr. Antonio Fernandez de Bujan from the Autonomous University of Madrid and Academician at the Royal Academy of Jurisprudence and Legislation of Spain, and Prof. Dr. Gabor Hamza, Professor of the University "Eotvosh Lorand" in Budapest and Academician of the Hungarian Academy of Sciences.

The IUS ROMANUM journal will be published with the support and assistance of the Faculty of Law of the Sofia University „St. Kliment Ohridski".

The aim of IUS ROMANUM is to promote the study of various aspects of the Roman law, whose importance is widely recognized, as well as the study of the continuity of Roman tradition in the legislation and the modern legal culture.

IUS ROMANUM is open not only to specialists in Roman law, but also to all scholars who are interested in the legal aspects of the Roman civilization and its historical development, and in the Roman roots of modern law and legal culture.

The journal is intended to be published twice a year - in May and November. Articles will be published in Bulgarian, but also in Italian, Spanish, French, English, German and Russian. In order to ensure broad dissemination of knowledge about the Romanistic scientific production, all articles written in foreign languages will be translated and published in Bulgarian.

Good luck to the new initiative of the Faculty of Law at the University of Sofia „St. Kliment Ohridski" to present the Roman legal culture in Bulgaria. Good luck
