Recent developments in the judicial field

Cristal Scales of Justice - awarded in Brussels in June 2009 for the project "Voluntary work of convicts in Poland" to the Central Board Prison Service of Poland

New provisions have been introduced concerning mediation and arbitration. A new law deals with immediate summary trials, with courts operating round the clock. A draft law on self-administration of the legal professions is being considered.
