Polish Hub

The ELI Polish Hub, chaired by Ewa Baginska and Marek Wierzbowski, was formally established in February 2015 under the initiative of Marek Wierzbowski, Ewa Baginska and Marlena Pecyna. To mark this endeavor, an evening of presentations and discussions, at which several eminent Polish lawyers as well as then ELI President Diana Wallis spoke, was held at the premises of the Polish Council of Legal Councillors in Warsaw, in the evening of 16 February 2015.

ELI Members based in Poland held a meeting to discuss the establishment and nature of the Hub, prior to the launch.

Attendees heard from Maria Ślązak (former Vice-President of Polish Bar and former President of the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE)), Marek Safjan (judge at the Court of Justice of the EU), Maciej Szpunar (Advocate General at the Court of Justice of the EU),  Arkadiusz Bereza (then Vice-President of the Bar Association) and Diana Wallis, who spoke about the mission of ELI and its most current projects. ELI already has a strong Polish representation among its Membership, such as then ELI Council Member Marek Wierzbowski and it is certain that the establishment and running of a national Hub will further spread information about ELI and its work throughout Poland and secure valuable new members from the region. 

Upon joining ELI, one becomes a member of the Hub in their country of residence or seat, provided no objections are raised. You can find the list of Individual Members by country of residence here.
