Právník (The Lawyer), the “flagship“ of the Institute, is the oldest legal periodical published in the Czech Republic; it embodies the unique tradition of Czech legal scholarship.
As a general law journal, it features articles and comments on all important developments and relevant issues in legal theory and international, EU and national law. It regularly publishes book reviews and annotations on current titles, and it also reports on major conferences, seminars, and legal events in the Czech Republic and abroad. Occasionnally, Právník also presents legal materials that pertain to current legal issues. Although Právník addresses especially the Czech audience (articles are in Czech or Slovak), foreign readers can take advantage of English summaries a keywords of its main articles and studies. Právník is a peer-reviewed journal, and it welcomes papers on any topical legal issue.
