Abstract
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 sh are the diffidence manifested b y 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.

remaining only to cases similar to the once previously judged, and to the solutions
given by the law courts in such cases, which makes the term of jurisprudence be
mistaken for case law. Jurisprudence cannot be widely uniform. The judicial praxis
becomes uniform when in similar cases are given similar solutions.
The importance of jurisprudential unification lies in the fact that the
jurisprudential discrepancies existing in fields of general interest for society
