About Public Law Review

Przegląd Prawa Publicznego [Public Law Review] is an academic journal whose aim is to publish articles, review articles, reviews, commentaries on judgments, and reports on academic conferences, symposiums and seminars devoted to a broad spectrum of questions relating to laws enacted through public interaction. These questions comprise not only ones that are typical of the cognitive purposes of administrative law studies in the traditional approach, that is, enacting and applying the norms of substantive and procedural administrative law, as well as administrative law on the system of government. The papers published in the journal concern also research problems from the remit of those branches and sub-disciplines of legal scholarhip that analyse regulations whose character is similar to that of administrative law norms (ones based on the administrative law method), such as public commercial law or financial law, or ones that concern the broad context of functioning of the legal system and public authorities in general, such as the mechanisms of socio-economic governance or the genesis and functions of law.
