Rooted in the innovative FRIA (Romanian Foundation for Business Intelligence) actions, LSO explores the intersection of law and sociology, economics, cultural studies, literature, political science, criminology, history, human rights, gender studies and political economy.

Our Journal aims to become a prestigious forum for interdisciplinary debate, both at theoretical and practical research addressing relevant issues at national, regional and international level.

I. The articles and case notes are designed to have the widest appeal to those interested in the law – whether as practitioners, judges or managers and adminstrators – and to provide an opportunity for them to keep abreast of new ideas, newly enacted legislation and the proposals for legal reform.

II. II. LSO seeks to promote and publish original research on law and normative orders understood as social phenomena. LSO strives to enhance the understanding of the complex connections between law, culture, social structure and society by focusing on social scientific studies of law and law-like systems of rules, institutions, processes, and behaviors.
LSO explores the relationship between human behavior and the law, the legal system, and the legal process. Coverage spans criminal justice, law, psychology, sociology, psychiatry, political science, education, communication, and other areas.

III. LSO offers an outlet for high-quality empirical and theoretical scholarly work at the intersection of law, economics and accounting. This includes research examining how law and regulation affect the structure, governance, performance, and function of organisations (firms, institutions, networks etc.) and markets that comprise the financial system. This interdisciplinary research area is referred to as “law and organisations” although relevant work comes from scholars whose principal home may be in accounting, economics or political science.

Journals are indexed BDI. For more information, please visit the journal websites.

II. Conference Proceedings

The proceedings will be available on the conference website and will be sent for indexation in THOMSON REUTERS database (in Conference Proceedings Citation Index). Manuscripts should be written only in English.

  2. The articles are going through a double process of selection. Firstly, The Scientific Council of the Conference will approve and evaluate it and later, by the Council that applies the rigors of accepting the work within the academic database Thomson Reuters.
  3. If the second evaluation rejects the articles, evaluation that can take place after a year, the authors can choose only in that moment to redirect for publication their work elsewere .
  4. In order to be sent to the academic database Thomson Reuters for indexing in Conference Proceedings Citation Index, it is mandatory to present the article within the works of the conference (one or more authors attend the conference for oral presentation of their article).
  5. We remind you that the articles published in the collective volumes of the Conference cannot replace the articles published in the scientific journals indexed in international data bases recognized internationally (the case of the journals SEA, NIS, CMJ and MI).

III. Academic platform

Publish your working papers on our academic platform at This platform brings together researchers and enables them to exchange and communicate academic research.

Constanța (historically known as Tomis) is the oldest continuously inhabited city in Romania. It was founded around 600 BC. The city is located in the Dobruja region of Romania, on the Black Sea coast. It is the capital of Constanța County and the largest city in the region.

One of the largest cities in Romania, Constanța is now an important cultural and economic center, worth exploring for its archaeological treasures and the atmosphere of the old town center. Its historical monuments, ancient ruins, grand Casino, museums and shops, and proximity to beach resorts make it the focal point of Black Sea coast tourism.

Situated at the crossroads of several commercial routes, Constanța lies on the western coast of the Black Sea, 298 km from the Bosphorus Strait. An ancient metropolis and Romania’s largest sea port, Constanța traces its history some 2,500 years. Originally called Tomis, legend has it that Jason landed here with the Argonauts after finding the Golden Fleece. The Port of Constanța has an area of 39.26 km2 which makes it the largest port on the Black Sea, and one of the largest ports in Europe.



The statue of Ovid stands in the Ovid Square (Piața Ovidiu) of Constanța. Designed by the sculptor Ettore Ferrari in 1887, the statue dedicated to the Roman poet, Publius Ovidius Naso, gives name to this square. Emperor Augustus exiled Ovid to Tomis in 8 AD. The statue is situated  in front of the “National History and Archaeology Museum” (the former City Hall), which holds a very large collection of ancient art.

The Casino at sunset

The Constanța Casino (Cazinoul din Constanța) is a casino in Constanța, Romania, located at 2 Elisabeta Boulevard along the Black Sea. Considered a symbol of the city, it was built in Art Nouveau style according to the plans of Daniel Renard and inaugurated in August 1910. The last major repairs took place in 1986-1988, and the building is currently closed. It is listed as a historic monument by Romania’s Ministry of Culture and Religious Affairs.

Constanța is the administrative center of the county with the same name and the largest city in the EU Southeastern development region of Romania. The city is located on the Black Sea coast, having a beach length of 13 kilometres (8 miles). Mamaia, an administrative district of Constanța, is the largest and most modern resort on the Romanian coast. Mineral springs in the surrounding area and sea bathing attract many visitors in the summer.


View from Mamaia


 The Roman Mosaics (Edificiul Roman cu Mozaic)

A vast complex on three levels once linked the upper town to the harbor. Today, only about a third of the original edifice remains, including more than 9,150 sq ft (850 m2) of colorful mosaics. Built toward the end of the 4th century AD and developed over the centuries, it was the city’s commercial center until the 7th century. Archaeological vestiges point to the existence of workshops, warehouses and shops in the area. Remains of the Roman public baths can still be seen nearby. Aqueducts brought water 6 miles (10 km) to the town.


The Genoese Lighthouse (Farul Genovez)

Soaring almost 8 m, the Genoese Lighthouse was built in 1860 by the Danubius and Black Sea Company to honor Genoese merchants who established a flourishing sea trade community here in the 13th century.

Completed between the two World Wars in art nouveau style according to the plans of the architects, Daniel Renard and Petre Antonescu, the Constanța Casino features sumptuous architecture and a wonderful view of the sea. The pedestrian area around the Casino is a sought-after destination for couples and families, especially at sunset.


The House with Lions (Casa cu Lei)

Blending pre-Romantic and Genovese architectural styles, this late 19th century building features four columns adorned with imposing sculptured lions. During the 1930s, its elegant salons hosted the Constanța Masonic Lodge.


The Archeology Park (Parcul Arheologic)

The park houses columns and fragments of 3rd and 4th-century buildings and a 6th-century tower.


St. Peter & Paul Orthodox Cathedral

Constructed in Greco-Roman style between 1883 and 1885, the church was severely damaged during World War II and was restored in 1951. The interior murals display a neo-Byzantine style combined with Romanian elements best observed in the iconostasis and pews, chandeliers and candlesticks (bronze and brass alloy), all designed by Ion Mincu and completed in Paris.


The Great Mahmudiye Mosque (Moscheea Mare Mahmoud II)

Built in 1910 by King Carol I, the mosque is the seat of the Mufti, the spiritual leader of the 55,000 Muslims (Turks and Tatars by origin) who live along the coast of the Dobrogea region. The building combines Byzantine and Romanian architectural elements, making it one of the most distinctive mosques in the area. The centerpiece of the interior is a large Turkish carpet, a gift from Sultan Abdul Hamid. Woven at the Hereke Handicraft Center in Turkey, it is one of the largest carpets in Europe, weighing 1,080 pounds. The main attraction of the mosque is the 164 ft (50 m) minaret (tower) which offers a stunning view of the old downtown and harbor. Five times a day, the muezzin climbs 140 steps to the top of the minaret to call the faithful to prayer.


Hünkar Mosque (Geamia Hunchiar)

The mosque was built between 1867-1868 by Ottoman Sultan Abdülaziz for Turks who were forced to leave Crimea after the Crimean War(1853–56) and settled in Constanța. The mosque has a 24m high minaret and was subject to a restoration in 1945 and 1992.


The Fantasio Theatre (Teatrul Fantasio)

Built in 1927 by Demostene Tranulis, a local philanthropist of Greek origin, this theatre used to be called “Tranulis” before 1947, after the name of its benefactor. It’s a fine building featuring elements of neoclassical architecture, located in the heart of the city, on Ferdinand Boulevard.
