The book “Contemporary Legal and Economic Issues” represents an international forum on major legal and economic problems confronting a contemporary society. It is organized in relatively rare format of a short monograph based on set of chosen scientific papers in the fields of law and economics, which is an advantageous way to construct a promising framework, to offer some scientific and practical comments and to arouse readers’ interest in the overall approach, without having to carry the burden of the necessity to strivefor completeness or detail.

Contributions to the book are made by individual authors and co-authors coming from international academic community who are providing a global perspective to various
economic and legal issues, whereby economic and legal principles are applied to real problems.

The authors are students and professors who, individually or as a joint effort, contribute an article that deals with legal or economic issues often proving in their texts that law and economics are two scientific fields that are in many cases highly inter-related.

The book promotes scientific writing as the primary tool of academics and scholars to disseminate thoughts, ideas, research results and boldly present them to the professional and lay public for discussion, praises and critiques; it promotes cooperation between students and professors, i.e. mentorship, which is rewarding for both students and their professors by uniting them in a joint effort to produce a work where each invests effort, knowledge and enthusiasm to the best of their potential and benefi ts from the synergy effect; it promotes international cooperation between individuals and institutions taking part in this project pointing out that the distances in geography no longer represent an obstacle in establishing and developing the international cooperation and making the world of science truly global; it proves through topics covered that nearly all issues, in this case related to the law and economics, have left the strict realm of purely domestic jurisdiction.

The book is intended as teaching and learning material in particular courses since it offers a reflection of current topics dealt in the fi elds of law and economics, as well as it can be very instructive text for wider audience who find legal and economic issues challenging.
