My academic work focuses on company law and corporate governance, which are the main subjects of my research, as well as my activities as a lecturer and as an expert. Moreover, I conduct research and publish on constitutional law, social security law (pension scheme), legal education, and different branches of business and economic law. As a researcher, I make use of comparative law and economic analysis of law.

Editorial Boards

Membership in editorial boards of law journals

European Company Law (Kluwer Law International)

Since 2015, I am an Editorial Board member of European Company Law published by Kluwer Law International. The bimonthly law journal is dedicated to European company law, both as EU law and comparative law.

Czasopismo Kwartalne Całego Prawa Handlowego, Upadłościowego oraz Rynku Kapitałowego (C.H. Beck)

I was the initiator and Editor-in-Chief of Law Quarterly for the entire Commercial, Insolvency and Capital Market Law (HUK Law Quarterly) published by C.H. Beck between 2007 and 2010 (ISSN: 1898-4126). The HUK Law Quarterly was inspired by traditional German Archivzeitschrift  type of journals from the one side, and by interdisciplinary American periodicals, mostly Law and Economics type ones, from the other side. The HUK Law Quarterly was innovative in many ways, had leading European experts on its Editorial  Board, each issue opened with a bilingual (PL/EN) editorial (some international members of the Editorial Board wrote their editorials), and it was probably the first Polish law journal to use the JEL classification system. Additionally, HUK Law Quarterly allowed for publishing extensive interdisciplinary legal studies. Some of the papers published in the HUK Law Quarterly remain up to day the primary reference works in their fields.

Reviews

Thus far, I have prepared reviews and opinions on texts submitted to the editorial boards of the following journals:

ALLERHAND ADVOCACY – PUBLIC INTEREST LAW

ALLERHAND ADVOCACY – PUBLIC INTEREST LAW is a program that I initiated within the Allerhand Institute to work on issues that are significant for the rule of law, transparency of public affairs and efficiency of the legal system.

The program goals are attained through requests and reports addressed to public authorities, through strategic litigations and through cooperation with the media, most importantly – with the press. The program is also designed as an educational venture –  program participants are recruited from among university students, predominantly law students. Student participants undergo clinical training as they work under the direct supervision of tutors (mostly attorneys). The most engaged students receive scholarships awarded annually.
