Oxford Legal Studies Research Paper No. 58/2006
The interplay of academics and judges is highly relevant for the law-making process in civil law countries. The intention of this article is to provide a brief account of the present-day relationship between academics and judges in Italy, while also taking account of the continental historical experience. In addressing this theme, the article will take its cue from developments in England - during the past three decades - where the monologue of academics and judges has been slowly developing into an ever more intensive and transparent dialogue. It is from these events that the analysis departs in an attempt to question the current situation in Italy.
