Chapter Summary

This introductory chapter provides an overview of the key themes discussed in the book. As trivial as it may sound, it is still necessary to acknowledge that the European Union (EU) and national laws are closely interwoven, and that the process of the Europeanisation of national law and national legal systems has been progressing at an unswerving pace. The study runs parallel to the aforementioned theories in trying to understand the way national judges behave in the context of EU law, and in explaining whether and how the judges adapt to the new legal circumstances: namely, the way they approach EU law and fulfill the associated expectations. The book first looks into the legal environment in which national judges function, and, consequently, broadens the scope of the analysis by providing empirical quantitative and qualitative data concerning how Polish civil judges in lower courts function as EU law judges.

Keywords: courts; European Union (EU); national judges; national laws; national legal system; Polish civil judges
