New rules regarding the concentration of procedural material


By Act of 16 September 2011 (Dz. U. 2011, no 233, item 1381) a vast reform of general and enforcement proceedings was adopted by the Polish Parliament. The Act entered into force on 3rd May 2012. Among many changes introduced by this Act, an emphasis should be put on the new rules of presenting facts and evidence by the parties.
