A new book published by Wolters Kluwer Polska features a contribution by Leszek Koziorowski, partner in GESSEL.

The book, “Between Tradition and Modernity. Polish Law on the Centenary of Independence”, presents an anthology of texts outlining the development of Polish law in its various aspects from the perspective of 100 years of Polish independence. These were elaborated on the basis of lectures given during the 19th Academic Conference of the Faculty of Law and Administration at the University of Warsaw.

The topics discussed include:

  • Basic rights;
  • Constitutional issues;
  • Civil law;
  • Criminal law;
  • Societal issues;
  • International regulations.

One of the monographs included in the publication, “One Hundred Years of Polish Capital” by Leszek Koziorowski and Prof. Aleksander Chłopecki, reprises the presentation given during the panel focusing on development of Polish business law. Its authors adopt today’s perspective in retracing the development of Polish equity markets, dividing the century into logical blocs – the period between the two world wars, the Polish People’s Republic through 1989, and the subsequent rebirth of a free market economy.
