About Case Law in Self-Government Cases

The "Orzecznictwo w Sprawach Samorządowych" [Case Law in Self-Government Cases] quarterly has a long history and many years of experience – it has been regularly published since 1994. The quarterly is Poland’s only scientific journal focusing on the practical aspects of the functioning of territorial self-government in Poland. It constitutes a platform for presenting the most important problems arising in connection with the operation of the structure of territorial self-government formed under the Constitution, legislation, and judgments of the bodies of public administration and courts.
“Case Law in Self-Government Cases” characterizes its potential – as a scientific and professional journal, it combines the academic and practical dimensions by referring directly to the judgments of the bodies of public administration (self-government boards of appeal, regional chambers of audit and voivods) and the courts (administrative and ordinary courts), as well as tribunals in self-governmental cases.
The quarterly presents reviewed commentaries, opinions, discussions and overviews of judgments, which apply to the manifestation of problems in the practice of applying self-government law. It is also the only journal that forms a platform for sharing decisions of self-government boards of appeal which are not (and are not required to be) published anywhere, as well as resolutions of regional chambers of audit. This means that “Case Law in Self-Government Cases” quarterly, together with “Territorial Self-Government” constitute two key scientific journals in Poland on self-government law.

The author receives 40 points for a publication in Case Law in Self-Government Cases (according to the Annex to the Communication of the Minister of Education and Science of 1 December 2021, regarding the list of academic journals and reviewed materials from international conferences, issued on the basis of Article 267(3) of the Act on Higher Education and Science of 20 July 2018, Polish Journal of Laws [Dziennik Ustaw], consolidated text: 2021, item 478, as amended).

The journal is included in the international European Reference Index for the Humanities and Social Sciences (ERIH+) database.
