The concreteness of this transformation emerges in particular from the final special section of this special issue, where we have interviewed four judges of the Constitutional Court of Italy, guest speakers at the IACL Roundtable, about the impact of European law on their legal education, their academic career and – above all – their role as constitutional judges.
