Summary

A file of correspondence, reports, and legal material concerning legal developments in Poland. The documents discuss a session of the Polish Sejm at which sixteen laws were passed; the introduction of a new family and guardianship code, confirming the "mutual and equal obligations of both partners in marriage" and prescribing that "property is to be held in common"; and the passing of a new law on the employment of graduates, which according to the British embassy in Warsaw is "noteworthy because it provides for the direction of graduate labour". The documents also cover the Polish Sejm's passing of a new law on the structure of the Polish Bar, which according to the British embassy amounts to "the collectivisation of the Polish Bar". Other documents comment on the Polish government's introduction of a new civil code; and the British belief that the majority of Polish lawyers are "alarmed by the sweeping reforms passed".
