About Case Law in Self-Government Cases

The Orzecznictwo w Sprawach Samorządowych [Case Law in Self-Government Cases] quarterly focuses on the practical aspects of the functioning of territorial self-government in Poland, being a medium for presenting the most important issues that arise in the context of the operation of the structure of local government on the basis of the Polish Constitution and statutory law.
The papers presented in the periodical are of great theoretical and practical importance, not only in the context of Polish realities, but also from the general point of view of the functioning of territorial self-government models in Europe and the rest of the world. The papers in the periodical are not only useful for the adjudicating practice of the Polish authorities; they can also be applicable in the international theoretical discourse on the functioning of territorial self-government.
