In this entire context, comparative law studies seem to be not just a possible remedy for a particular social or legal problem but a compulsory epistemological attitude for the legal actors. Undertaken in the past by a bunch of legal scholars for more or less idealistic theoretical purposes, comparative law should become today an established pattern of legal knowledge. This is why comparative law can no more be an (un)methodological way to assemble information about foreign legal systems but a conscious and elaborated path to communicate with and understand the other in law. In this sense, this journal is not only aimed to provide rough data about the legal systems of the world but also to create a theoretical framework for an academic debate about how to meet and handle foreignness in law. It could be also an incentive to debate about the essential role that comparative law could play in the context of the European legal convergence and offer to the Romanian legal actors responses on why and how to meet other national legal systems in European Union.
Assuming these aims and in a very optimistic state of mind, we (a small group of young Romanian law scholars) hope to awake between the Romanian legal scholars the interest for the comparative approach in legal science. In the same time, we are conscious that the success of this project depends also on the scientific dialogue with our foreign colleagues.
