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.

Občanství Evropské unie – nedopsaná kapitola unijního práva

EU Citizenship – an Unfinished Chapter of EU Law The movement and residence of people within the EU are regulated by both the national and EU law where the first applies primarily to third country nationals and the second to EU citizens and where both regimes are of course different. The problem is that members of both groups are often linked together (as family members) meaning that both regimes must be used at once. The EU secondary law regulates the legal status of such citizen and his/her relatives only when exercising the right to move and reside in another Member state. The case law of the Court of Justice has extended the right to reside within the EU also to static EU citizens and their relatives. The article therefore analyses the respective case law of the Court of Justice. In addition to that the author tries to find the answer on following questions: what is the purpose of Art. 20 and 21 of the TFEU? Is there a right to move and subsequently reside in another Member state? Or shall they be understood as allowing the EU citizen to move and/or reside anywhere in the EU?
