Who is the maid of law? Does she bear a name or a title? Is she a person or a member of staff? Or are these differences that do not make a difference? The electronic journal Ancilla Iuris (anci.ch) deals with the state of the law, projecting answers into time and providing the reflexive mechanisms necessary for doing so.

Ancilla Iuris encourages researchers to publish critical commentaries and analyses of law that assess the wayward legal order in their own, unique way.
