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.

Recognition and enforcement of judgments in commercial matters rendered by courts of non-eu countries in the Czech Republic
[Recognition and enforcement of judgments in commercial matters rendered by courts of non-eu countries in the Czech Republic]
Magdalena Pfeiffer, Marta Zavadilová

The article deals with the conditions under which Czech courts recognise and enforce judgments rendered in commercial matters by courts outside of the EU. The relevant rules on recognition and enforcement are contained in both the Czech Act on Private International Law and in a number of international treaties binding for the Czech Republic. The authors analyse in detail the Czech national rules with particular emphasis on grounds for non-recognition and on the enforcement procedure, including relevant national case-law. As the Czech Republic is bound by a significant number of bilateral treaties on legal assistance that contain relevant provisions, the authors also bring a brief overview of the rules therein.
