The legal issues compared by litigants to the phenomenon of globalization include thepenetration of global juridical values into the national law systems to which they do nottraditionally belong and thus, we may speak of the globalization of law. Globalization, aphenomenon that practically extends the communication bridges among states also results inthe fact that the internal legal order expands towards a new legal order, namely a globallegal order. In this context, the modernization and compatibility of the legal systems throughthe transfer of law is inevitable, a fact that might mean the total or partial replacement of alaw system which proves to be out of date or obsolete by a system or parts of it assumed to besomehow superior and healthier and aiming at enriching or treating such system so as toensure the compatibility of an internal legal system to the regional and inevitably theinternational one. In these conditions, the science of law exceeds the borders and the internalorganization rules of a certain state may be useful in other state and vice-versa.
