This book is a tribute by the International Association of Procedural Law to
its honorary president, the late Mauro Cappelletti (1927-2004).
Mauro Cappelletti can be considered one of the most indeed, perhaps the most
outstanding scholars in the field of the judicial process in general and
comparative procedural law in particular. He was professor in Firenze and in
Stanford and published a large number of books and articles on civil

Access tot Justice-report in six volumes (1978) can be considered a
worldwide eye- opener to the problem of accessibility to law and courts.
Six eminent scholars (Marcel STORME, Nicolo ThOCKER, Federico CAMPI, Sir Jack

personality and analyse the significance of his scientific work. An
