Silesian Journal of Legal Studies

The SJLS is the outcome of the cooperation of the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Silesia, the Foundation “Facultas Iuridica” and the University of Silesia Publishing House.

The Journal has been founded by the Council of the Faculty of Law and Administration of the University of Silesia in Katowice in 2008. Its aim is to overcome frontiers and obstacles in spreading ideas, opinions and information on law and legal systems. I hope that the essays or articles published in our Journal will prove to be an interesting contribution to comparative studies worldwide. In other words, the SJLS aspires to be a discussion forum for Polish and foreign lawyers representing various branches of law. For the above reasons, articles may be published in English and German however, publication in other languages is not excluded. The printed version of the SJLS is an original version.

The publication in SJLS is awarded 5 points according to the Ministry of Science and Higher Eduction list used for scientific units evaluation (Part B).
