Constitutional law which was once called political or state law, a constantly modified group of legal provisions, which regulate the functioning of the state in every respect. Thanks to the constitutional law, the rights and obligations of the citizen are also determined.
The most important piece of legislation, the constitution is the basis of constitutional law. Currently in Poland for a year 1997, it is one legal act containing various acts. Even before these changes, it used to be several pieces of legislation, which had the same validity. Legal acts in various areas in the territory of the Republic of Poland have been in force for a year 1992 do 1997.
An interesting fact is this, that each country has different legal regulations, the same or very close to our constitution. For example in Great Britain, there are different standards with laws. One such important document is, for example, the Age Charter of Freedoms, which has been in existence since 1215 year.
As for the hierarchy of legal acts, it is the provision of the constitution that is the most important document, which applies to all Poles. There is even the so-called constitutionality principle, which talks about it, that no executive regulation may turn out to be different from what is contained in legal provisions in the constitution. A specially appointed Constitutional Tribunal is responsible for the correctness of all provisions in the Constitution. In Poland, therefore, we can talk about the so-called normative acts, which include, inter alia, the Constitution.
