Law of Poland

The Polish law, or legal system in Poland. has been developing since the first centuries of Polish history, over 1000 years ago. The public and private laws of Poland are codified. The supreme law in Poland is the Constitution of Poland. Poland is a civil law legal jurisdiction and has a civil code, the "Civil Code" of Poland.

Polish public and private laws are divided into various areas, including, for example:
*civil law ("prawo cywilne"), much of which is contained in the "Polish Civil Code"
*commercial law, ("prawo handlowe") notably the "Polish Commercial Companies Code"
*administrative law ("prawo administracyjne")
*constitutional law ("prawo konstytucyjne")
*private international law ("prawo prywatne międzynarodowe")
*tax laws ("prawo podatkowe")
*criminal law ("prawo karne")
*family law ("prawo rodzinne")
*labour law ("prawo pracy")
*water law ("prawo wodne")
*copyright law ("prawo autorskie") - see Polish copyright law
*media law ("prawo prasowe")

New Polish law is published in Dziennik Ustaw and Monitor Polski ("see promulgation").
