100 years ago, the Parliament passed the Constitution of the Republic of Poland

On 17 March 1921, before 17:00 hrs, the Parliament passed the Constitution of the Republic of Poland.

Professor Piotr Hofmański elected President of the International Criminal Court

70 years ago, Rafał Lemkin celebrated the entry into force of the UN Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide of December 9, 1948. However, he did not rest with this achievement, but set himself another goal of his solitary struggle - the creation of a permanent international criminal tribunal. Unfortunately, he failed to achieve this goal, which was due to many factors. Only half a century after the Convention was adopted by the UN General Assembly, in 1998, the international community adopted the Rome Statute, and - as a consequence - four years later the International Criminal Court was established. Lemkin's dream has come true. In 2015, a judge from Poland was elected to the Tribunal. Six years later, the same judge became the President of the Tribunal. It is a great distinction and honour for Poland, also considering the fact that one of the founders of modern International Criminal Law was Rafał Lemkin, and his compatriot today heads one of the most important global judicial institutions.

The latest issue of "The Voice of Law" is already the 200th issue with the Journal's name!

We tidied up the archives of the pre-war "Voice of Law". Unfortunately, the collection of all materials related to the Journal is not an easy task. That said, we managed to count all volumes and issues of the Journal. This led us to the conclusion that before September 1939, 194 issues of "The Voice of Law" were published. The current issue 2(6) from 2020 is already the 200th issue of the Journal, counting from the creation of the title in 1924.

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
