The first issue of the semi-annual In Principle. Legal Studies and Analyses (in Polish, with English abstracts) appeared in November 2019. It is the scholarly counterpart to the firm’s portal In Principle, focusing on practical aspects of creation and application of law, but in a more in-depth, specialised approach.
Our authors are mostly legal practitioners, but often combine their practice in law firms, courts, prosecutors’ offices, and public institutions with work at universities or other academic or training experience.
The journal is open to contributions from all corners of the legal community: judges, advocates, attorneys-at-law, notaries, prosecutors, bailiffs, public administrative staff, academic staff, and professional trainees. We seek pluralism in the authors’ specialisations and affiliations.
Our aim is for the journal to offer a broad forum for exchange of views enriching all fields of legal literature. We would also like it to serve as a tool enabling the authors to contribute actively to the development of case law. We believe that one of the overriding aims of the legal community should be to help ensure that the entire legal system in Poland functions harmoniously.
The substantive quality of the content is overseen by the Academic Board, comprising recognised legal authorities, and a team of reviewers who are specialists in their field.
The original (reference) version of the journal In Principle. Legal Studies and Analyses is the print edition.
