Edited by the Faculty of Law of ‘Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano’

The Faculty of Law of Università Cattolica del Sacro Cuore di Milano publishes a law review called "Jus – Rivista di Scienze Giuridiche"(Jus – Journal of Legal Sciences). In particular this review is focused on the analysis of the general issues of law which are examined considering principles and never-ending values of reason and justice. The latter must be affirmed and maintained for ever beyond historical changes.
The review contains a series of essays and papers. The aim of all these works is to actively contribute to promote and to defend human and fundamental rights, as well as to pursue the development of civil solidarity. All these perspectives of scientific research involve internal, international and UE legal systems.
Last, but not least, the review publishes focused and specific essays concerning legal problems and topics which every day challenge jurists operating in various legal fields.

The manuscripts sent by authors are submitted to a double-blind peer review before being accepted for publication.

La norma personalista, la famiglia ‘fondata sul matrimonio’ e il diritto alla genitorialità naturale
by Emanuele Bilotti pages: 29 € 6.00
Moving from a thought on the authentic meaning of the constitutional personalism, the paper tries to clarify how the constitutional models of the natural parenthood and the family “based on marriage” are not simply a historical  contingency. They are rather an essential element of a constitutional project promoting human relationships based on mutual recognition. Those models, in fact, shall cooperate to ensure the dignity of the human birth. Therefore, the relativization of those models is related to a transformation of the constitutional project into an individualistic perspective. Nevertheless, the individual rights strategy could itself convey ideological views. It is rather required 
to restore the reputation of the constitutional personalism.
Le denunce anonime e il procedimento amministrativo
by Doriana Natalello pages: 25 € 6.00
Positing the lack of general provisions on anonymous complaints, the paper examines the – often contradictory – indicators that can be inferred from public law regarding their admissibility. Taking into consideration administrative  case-law, the research sheds light on the widespread use of anonymous complaints, which makes the question of their compatibility with the general principles governing the exercise of administrative action within a democratic  system even more pressing.
Brevi note su possessor pro herede e pro possessore: ricadute in punto di bona e mala fides
by Francesca Rossi pages: 29 € 6.00
The essay examines possession in Roman law, focusing on possessor pro herede and possessor pro possessore. The subjective element of both of them is analysed. In the light of the testimonies of the Latin jurists, namely Ulpian  and Gaius, the definitions and features of the two different types of possessores are studied, taking into account the impact of the psychological state (good or bad faith) in order to constitute one type of possession or the other.


Le parole del diritto e la scienza del diritto con la sua dimensione internazionale
by Andrea Nicolussi pages: 12 € 6.00
The essay deals with the centrality of the words of law in the teaching of Carlo Castronovo and highlights the aspects related to legal aesthetics, the new legal dogmatics and legal comparison.
Divagazioni su parola e diritto
by Carlo Castronovo pages: 18 € 6.00
It is obvious that law, without words, is inconceivable. What this essay tries to argue is that they are still more important. Words, once adopted by statutes and interpreted to be applied, become the true dominant entities in the struggle for law.
