This issue of The New Yugoslav Law is devoted to the First Con-
gress of Jurists of Yugoslavia exclusively. The questions which were dealt with
at this Congress included: a) The Role of Law and Jurists in the Social Orga-
nization of Yugoslavia; b) Codification in the Domain of Economic Law; c)

method of operation of the lawcourts, social control of the the work of law-
