This volume presents contributions to the conference 'Globalization and Europeanization' 'Legal Culture in Transition - Supranational and International Law Before National Courts' at the Jean Monnet Inter-University Centre of Excellence Opatija. In attempt to reflect upon relationship between national and international/supranational law, the starting assumption was that international and European Union law are not merely additional bodies of law for judges to master, but that the encounter with new modes of reasoning has the potential to profoundly affect the legal culture in, both, 'old' and 'new' Member States.
Thus, the conference was not meant to discuss the practicalities of how national courts should adapt to the need to learn and apply new sources of law, but to address broader issues of legal culture in multilevel contexts, legal interpretation and the role of courts in a democratic society.
