About Court Review

The most important opinion-forming journal devoted to legal issues of the administration of justice. It has helped several generations of lawyers learn about the latest directions in the development and interpretation of Polish law.

The history of Przegląd Sądowy [Court Review] and its predecessors started over 70 years ago, in 1944. From 1944 to 1950, the monthly was named Demokratyczny Przegląd Prawniczy [Democratic Legal Review]. It was a continuation of the pre-WWII legal thought of eminent professors of law and legal practitioners. The change of the journal’s title to Nowe Prawo [New Law] (1950–1991) was almost certainly a manifestation of the legal and structural transformations in Poland, even though efforts were made to remain with the old standards. The chief editors were lawyers with great authority and substantial academic achievements, including Prof. Zbigniew Resich. This position has been held since 1991 by Prof. Dr. Hab. Tadeusz Ereciński from the University of Warsaw, author of numerous academic publications, a long-standing Justice and President of the Supreme Court, where he headed the work of the Civil Chamber (currently retired).

The author receives 70 points for a publication in Court Review (according to the Annex to the Communication of the Minister of Education and Science of 9 February 2021, as amended by the Communication of 18 February 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: 2020, item 85, as amended).

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

Przegląd Sądowy [Court Review] has been published under the current title since 1991. The monthly publishes articles (6–8 in each issue) and commentaries on judgments of the Constitutional Tribunal, the Supreme Court (in civil and criminal cases), the Supreme Administrative Court, and voivodship administrative courts, as well as case law reviews.

The problems discussed in the monthly include the so-called judicial law, which particularly focuses on issues relating to proceedings before the ordinary courts, administrative courts, the Supreme Court and the Supreme Administrative Court. It also deals with topical issues related to the application of EU law and comparative law issues.

The authors include outstanding legal scholars and practitioners, as well as young lawyers. For academics, legal practitioners and especially young researchers, publications in Przegląd Sądowy are, in a way, a glorification. The high quality of the content is guaranteed by the journal’s Editorial Board, comprising professors of law and Supreme Court judges, as well as a group of carefully selected reviewers, who are recognized experts in the areas to which the publications apply.
