The Scientific Circle of Comparative Law cordially invites you to take part in Nationwide Scientific Conference „The participation of citizenry in the administration of justice”, which will be held on 6-7th of April 2018, in the Ballroom of Tyszkiewicze-Potoccy Palace, 32 Krakowskie Przedmieście street, Warsaw.

Pursuant to the article 182 of Polish constitution the citizenry participates in the administration of justice alongside with professional judges. Forms of that participation can be different, however. Even if the statue provides with the institution of juror, the questions whether the scope of participation of citizenry should be wider remains open. An discussion on the possibility of introducing the magistrate courts into Polish judiciary system is currently going on. We need to consider whether current forms of participation of citizenry in the administration of justice are sufficient, and this matter is approached in various jurisdictions.

On 6th of April (Friday) several expert panels conducted by prominent representatives of scholars and specialists will be held. The details on the invited guests will be presented soon.

Student panels are scheduled for 7th April (Saturday). We invite you to engage as an active participant or as an auditor.
