"A judge and the Constitution: the crisis in the Constitutional Tribunal’s work, and distributed control of the law’s consistence with the Constitution” was the title of the conference, held on 3 March  in Katowice. The event was attended by deputy CHR Stanisław Trociuk.

- The current Constitutional Tribunal crisis has a direct influence on the work of the Commissioner of Human Rights. The paralysis of the Tribunal’s work translates into the CHR’s attempts to find other measures to protect citizens’ rights and liberties, emphasized Stanisław Trociuk. The Commissioner’s deputy also stressed that every common court not only may, but is required to refuse to apply a legal regulation that is inconsistent with the international law (e.g. the Charter of Fundamental Rights). - The Constitution contains a broad scope of reserves to which we may refer in such situations, added Trociuk. Nearly a thousand persons from across Poland, representing different legal professions, registered to take part in the conference. Among the panellists and invited guests were, among others, Małgorzata Gersdorf, the first president of the Supreme Court, Marek Safjan, a judge of the EU Court of Justice, Stanisław Biernat, Vice President of the Constitutional Tribunal, we well as Ewa Łętowska and Andrzej Zoll.
