The use of art. 180 paragraph 5 of the Constitution to flatten the judiciary system: a cautionary forecast
The use of art. 180 paragraph 5 of the Constitution to flatten the judiciary system. The summary of the Helsinki Debate
The Helsinki Debate outlines permissible changes to the judiciary system and the
status of judges of common courts as provided for in Article 180 paragraph 5 of the Constitution, but focused mostly on proposed changes that remain outside constitutional boundaries. It may be worthwhile to formulate several general reflections. The first is an observation about the multiplicity of contexts in which it is possible to analyze the plans to „flatten” the structure of the judiciary and change the position of judges, as well as the diversity of approaches to this issue appearing in the debate.
