Article 5 - Some aspects concerning the reorganization of companies within the context of the legal regulation in force


The merger, division and separation of companies, within the meaning of Law no. 31/1190 republished, represent from a juridical point of view ways of reorganizing the companies with legal personality, through which there are accomplished, in an economic perspective, a number of strategic options for restructuring, rationalization of internal organization of the participating entities, the concentration of activities and capital in order to better respond to economic realities. Aware of the importance of these operations, the legislator has been working constantly to create a coherent legal framework adequate to achieve them, by simplifying the applicable procedure and eliminating any obstacles or constraints, at least of a legislative nature.
Equally, given that companies governed by Law no. 31/1990 republished are legal persons, the juridical regime applicable to mergers, divisions and separations involving these companies has to be defined and interpreted in the broader context of the general regulation applicable to the reorganization of legal persons, as it is contained in the new Civil Code.

Article 8 - The relevance of the European regulations regarding the improvement of transparency and integrity in local public administration. Analysis of the implications on the legislation


The national legislation in the field of local public administration has steadily improved following the onset of the process of adapting to the European requirements. The increase of public confidence in the institutions of public administration in general, and in those of local public administration in particular, can be ensured solely through the transparency of the decisional act at local level and through a conduct of integrity of the local administration staff and of the local officials. Decisional transparency and integrity in local public administration are concepts that have become concrete in the Romanian administrative system through several national legislative instruments inspired by European regulations. The article analyzes these legislative instruments and proposes an improvement of the legislative solutions contained, in order to increase transparency and integrity in local public administration and to avoid blockages in their implementation in administrative practice.

Article 11 - The legal regime of competition in United Kingdom


The United Kingdom has recently introduced a unitary competition regime. Begining with 1979, the United Kingdom was a primary exponent of the neoliberal philosophy, putting in first place market, privatisation, liberalisation and deregulation. For that reason, a competition policy did not exist too much in practice for almost two decades. An important aspect was the influence of European Union competition law. Even in a such situation, the supranational policy could not take the place in of a domestic competition policy. The British Parliament adopted some rules in 1998 in the field of anti-competitive agreements and the control of abuse of dominance and in 2002 in the field of merger control. In March 2012, there were announced the proposals for the reformation the United Kingdom competition law regime. According to the proposals, the functions of the Competition Commission and the competition functions of the Office of Fair Trading (OFT), will be the competences of a new, single competition authority, the Competition and Markets Authority (CMA). The new body will have jurisdiction to analyse merger control reviews and market investigations, and in the same time will act as the main institution enforcing the competition laws.

Article 12 - The jurisprudence. Formal law source


The importance of jurisprudential unification lies in the fact that the jurisprudential discrepancies existing in fields of general interest for society produce a state of uncertainty, which diminishes the public’s trust in the judicial system.
In general, in the Romanian law system, jurisprudence (the juridical praxis), although it has been approached regarding the sources of law by Romanian scholars, they reached a common conclusion, in the sense that it is not a formal source of law.
As far as we are concerned, as we will show in the subsequent developments, we do not share the diffidence manifested by the authors, generally, with regard to seeing jurisprudence as not a source of law, with the nuances and parantheses required.
The modern trend was one of closeness and interconditioning between the two great law systems (the great Romano-Germanic system and the great common-law system), this is way we have to leave behind the prejudices and to see the fact that, in the Romanian judicial reality as well, jurisprudence has gained an increasingly significant role.
In the next years, we believe that jurisprudence, by shaping general law principles, will be recognized as a main source of law.

Article 13 - Considerations regarding parental authority in Romanian private international law


Parental authority is the entirety of rights and obligations concerning both the person and the property of the child and belongs equally to both parents. In Romanian private international law, parental authority is governed by art. 2611 of the Romanian Civil Code. This legal provision is a reference rule which establishes that the law applicable to parental authority and children’s protection is determined under the Convention on Jurisdiction, Applicable Law, Recognition, Enforcement and Cooperation in respect of Parental Responsibility and Measures for the Protection of Children, adopted in Hague on 19 October 1996. This convention is part of the complex process of aligning the Romanian legislation to EU regulations.
For an overview of relevant legal regulations addressed by the Convention, in the present study we analyzed the main issues referring to the domain of application of the Convention, the law applicable to child protection measures, parental responsibility, and the recognition and enforcement of measures regarding parental responsibility and child protection.

Article 14 - The alternative residence of minors with separated parents


The present article proposes to analyze the modality in which the alternative residence is established within the legislation of several states, as well as the modality in which the courts apply the notion of alternative residence. In addition to this, we took into consideration the views expressed by psychologists regarding this matter. In the latter part of the article we analyzed the regulations regarding the residence of minors whose parents are separated in domestic law and we submitted our conclusions regarding the advantages and the disadvantages of an alternative residence. In order to obtain the necessary information, we studied the legislation from different countries, the principles of the European Commission on Family Law, articles on this subject and case law, as well as studies conducted in several states. We were therefore able to observe that in some states, the alternative residence is explicitly provisioned by law, while in other states, even though the notion is not explicitly provisioned, the courts managed to find ways in which, through the judgments rendered, to establish it by way of fact. The study is relevant to our legal system as domestic legislation does not specifies alternative residence, but nevertheless, in practice, such an arrangement could answer best the superior interest of the child.
Cuvinte-cheie: alternative residence, alternative home, equal share of parental obligations, equal time spent with both parents, shared parental responsibility
