The role and scope of powers of the Constutional Tribunal in Poland

Anna Rytel-Warzocha


Constitutional judiciary plays an important role in contemporary constitutional orders based on the principles of democracy, the rule of law and the division of powers, regardless of institutional solutions adopted in individual states. Due to the high authority of these bodies, resulting primarily from their highly qualified composition, constitutional courts not only fulfill their basic function of reviewing the constitutionality and legality of law, but also receive a number of specific competences that go beyond this function. The analysis presented in the article focuses on the role and the scope of competences of the Polish Constitutional Tribunal with regard to the abstract and concrete constitutional review, as well as other competences not directly related to the review of law.
