Acta Universitatis Carolinae Iuridica (AUC Iuridica) is a legal journal published since 1955, which presents longer essays as well as short articles on topics relevant for legal theory and international, European and Czech law. It also publishes works concerning current legislative problems.

Although intended primarily for domestic audience, AUC Iuridica is useful also for foreign experts, who can take advantage of summaries in foreign languages (English, German and French) and key words, which are systematically added to the main articles and essays.

The published articles are subject to peer reviews. If necessary, reviewed texts are sent back to the author for revision.

AUC Iuridica accepts contributions from any contributor on any current legal topic.

The journal is registered in the Czech National Bibliography (kept by the National Library of the Czech Republic) and in the Index to Foreign Legal Periodicals (kept by the American Association of Law Libraries).

The journal is archived in Portico.


We are pleased to inform you that the journal Acta Universitatis Carolinae Iuridica was the first journal of the Faculty of Law of Charles University to be included in the prestigious international database SCOPUS. This Elsevier database is the largest abstract and citation database of peer-reviewed literature in the world. The editors of the journal expect from the inclusion in the elite SCOPUS database not only an increase in the readership of the journal, but also an increase in interest in the publication of papers by both Czech and foreign authors.

The Right of EU Citizenst to Access to EU Institutions’ Documents The right to access to EU documents is one of the rights the beneficiary of which are (but not only) EU citizens. This right is not listed in the fundamental rights catalogue of EU Citizen under Article 20 of the Treaty on Functioning of the EU, but is enshrined in Article 15(3) TFEU and Article 42 of the Charter of fundamental Rights of the EU; thereby it is not only an EU fundamental right but an EU principle as well. These primary EU law provisions are specified in Regulation 1049/2001. This right is of interest to both academic and legal practitioners, namely of those involved in private law enforcement of EU law-based claims (e.g. competition); therefore it is a subject to very dynamic case-law of the EU Court of Justice.
