Chapter Summary

In this chapter, the results of the empirical study carried out among Polish civil judges in district and regional civil courts are presented. The data are modeled in several clusters that address various aspects of the functioning of national judges in the context of European Union (EU) law. Direct consultation with the jurisprudence of the Court of Justice of the EU (CJEU) and legal handbooks are some of the most popular ways to broaden one's knowledge of EU law. The qualitative part of the study in the chapter indicates that training has been and remains the most popular manner of gaining information about EU law. The entire analysis pertaining to knowledge of EU law reveals the magnitude of problems in each area as regards accessing and disseminating information, and gaining, processing, and applying this knowledge. The chapter also focuses on the phenomenon of judicial behavior.
