Classes are aimed at presenting - in the light of the 1997 Constitution of the Republic of Poland and some other normative acts - general principles of Polish political system, individuals’ fundamental rights, freedoms and obligations, as well as the system of public institutions, their competences and mutual relations.
During the lecture following issues are presented: the principles of Polish political system, in particular: the principle of the democratic State governed by the rule of law, the principles concerning the status of individuals (freedoms, rights and obligations), as well as institutional guarantees of their protection (administration of justice, Tribunals, the Ombudsman); organization, the scope of activities and the mechanisms of functioning of legislative organs (Sejm, Senate, National Assembly), executive organs (President, Council of Ministers), as well as of courts and Tribunals. In particular, the lecture is focused on the system of sources of law (universally binding law and acts of internal character), as defined by the 1997 Constitution, and on the mechanisms of constitutional review of normative acts. Furthermore, lecture concerns institutions of indirect democracy (elections) and direct democracy (constitutional referendum, referendum on the ratification of international treaties, nationwide referendum, the popular right to initiate legislation). Lecture also covers legal problems concerning local government, public finances and state audit.
Classes in groups are aimed at developing students’ knowledge on issues presented on the lecture. Furthermore, during classes some exemplary practical problems are analysed. In the course of classes students are also inspired to discuss, interpret normative acts, as well as to solve constitutional problems.
