The ultimate outcome of the development of legal science should be doctrines presented systematically and in an accessible manner, regardless of their degree of complexity. The ideal product of the activity of a legal theorist should be the publication of such a manual, which could lie on the table of every judge, every practicing lawyer, where any doctrine, any concept would be defined, described and explained simply enough for a quick under-standing by a person with a basic legal education. ELEMENTA (principles of private law) will be formed ac-cording to the following principle:

A certain number of fundamental doctrines of private law must be defined. These doctrines should be selected based on their relevance to judicial and arbitration practices and should be uniform for the entire continental fa-mily of legal systems or for most of them.
