Abstract. Comparative law approaches operated and even now are operating through the concept of group, as well as for instance by terminologies of legal family, (great) legal system, legal culture and context. This text is focused on part of Eastern European space from the point of view of part of Western comparative law studies. In the second half of the 20th century one has to deal here with a zone which was for several decades understood by them as a component of the socialist group. Later Western comparative law reflected big change which marked relevant area and turned to references to transition and transformation. Posttransformative references to legal situation in Eastern Europe of early years of the second decade of the 21st century show that all states of this zone had not passed the period of transformation in same manner. Recent regroupings of states of the relevant space are based on evaluations of their adaptation to Western and Europeanization standards with special respect to public law part of evaluated reforms. One has to take into account that evaluations of transformation process are concerned in reached measures of rule of law, approach to human rights, quality of relations to European Union. Many states of Eastern Europe became member states of the European Union on the one hand and part of Eastern Europe is considered even neither constituent part of continental legal group on the other. Last but not least one has to remark that majority of states of relevant zone originated in the early 90´s of the 20th century within spaces of dissolved federations and thus (in addition) solved problems connected with constitution of nation statehood. New, as well as other states were especially within the European context confronted with recent legal pluralism and with its adequate reflection.
