                                     Editorial



Lectoribus salutem -  Greatings to the Readers - Istvn  Werb6czy  opened  with these
words  his monumental  law book, the Tripartitum, a collection of Hungarian royal statutes
and  customary  law, five hundred years ago. This can  be considered the beginning  of
systematized Hungarian  legal thinking, seeking contact with the main streams of leading
contemporary  legal disciplines in Europe.
     lustitia est constans et perpetua voluntas ius suum cuique tribuens - Justice is an
unswerving  and perpetual determination to acknowledge all men's rights (Just. Inst. 1,1
pr). Almost one thousand five hundred years ago Emperor Justinian set a high standard for
lawyers and  scholars of legal studies. Following a long tradition, this periodical aims to
answer  and address the new challenges of our age.
     The Hungarian  Journal of Legal Studies - Acta Juridica Hungarica is an established
periodical of the Hungarian Academy  of Sciences, founded in 1959. Over  fifty years, in
more  than two hundred issues, HJLS has published many studies in a wide range of fields.
The  main aim  was the promotion  of the results of Hungarian legal jurisprudence for an
international community  of  researchers and to inform  about  recent developments  in
Hungarian  legislation.
     In January 2015, the editors changed and a new editorial board was instated with a
slightly different policy and vision. First of all, HJLS became a peer-reviewed journal for
jurisprudence on national, transnational and European law, with Open Access  character,
registered in leading on-line data banks such as Hein-online.
     The focus of the Hungarian Journal of Legal Studies is no longer just on national legal
research. The main  target of HJLS is to become a vivid forum for scholarly disputes in
Central and Eastern Europe,  connect scientists and scientific schools from the East and
West. It is a sign of high quality and strong beginnings that for the first quarter we received
papers from eight countries - and 40% of the submitted manuscripts were rejected.
     The  editors encourage Hungarian  and  non-Hungarian  scholars, as well as young
researchers to submit papers. Editors and publishers promise a short turnaround and high
quality publication both in print and on-line.
