The article discusses two main theses. The first one is the presence and forms of the rule of law in the international legal scenario.

The second thesis is that the rule of law plays a role in the interpretation of law.

The final point regards then the relationships between international rule of law and legal science, and, in particular, the answering to the question about the features of a legal science able to foster the rule of law.
