Project Poland began in 1997 with the donation of an Internet server to the Commercial Law Center in Warsaw. The Commercial Law Center is a non-for-profit organization formed by the Warsaw Bar Associations. The Center web site, www.prawo.org, offers free access to information about the Polish legal system, statutes, and judicial decisions.

  • The Project History

     The activities with the Commercial Law Center led to cooperation with ABC Publishing House and Iustitia, the Polish Association of Judges. With the help of the American Bar Association’s Central and East European Law Initiative (ABA/CEELI), Project Poland, Iustitia, and ABC Publishing opened a Computer Training Center in Warsaw for judges and court staff. The ABA/CEELI liaisons in Warsaw, Frank Kulbaski and Delaine Swenson, introduced Professor Richard Warner, the Project’s Director, to Professor Grzegorz Górski of Law Faculty of the Catholic University of Lublin. Professors Warner and Górski organized the American Studies Program at the Catholic University of Lublin.
