 AJEE Aim and Scope



The main aim of AJEE is to offer a forum for discussion of topical issues of judiciary and civil procedure reforms, sharing of research results related to access to justice developments in East European countries including Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania and others. This scope has been chosen due to special mixed features of post-social legal doctrine’s legacy and Western influence, as well as the legislative approximation to the EU law. 


It is a great honour to have well-known scholars from all over the world among our Editorial Board Members, who represent eleven European  states – Ukraine, Poland, Lithuania, Croatia, Italy, Germany, Austria, the Netherlands, Spain, Greece, Luxemburg, and Belgium.

AJEE Мета та сфера застосування
Основна мета AJEE - запропонувати форум для обговорення актуальних питань реформування судової влади та цивільного судочинства, обмінюватися результатами досліджень, пов'язаних із доступом до правосуддя у країнах Східної Європи, включаючи Україну, Польщу, Литву та інші. Ця сфера була обрана завдяки особливим змішаним особливостям постсоціальної правової доктрини та впливу західноєвропейської доктрини, а також обраного вектору наближення національного законодавства до права ЄС. Серед членів нашої редакційної ради відомі науковці з усього світу - з України, Польщі, Литви, Хорватії, Італії, Німеччини, Австрії, Нідерландів, Іспанії, Греції, Люксембургу та Бельгії.
Редакційна політика AJEE
Редакційна рада та Консультативна рада AJEE складаються з фахівців, які є визнаними експертами провідних установ європейських країн (див. About AJEE).
