I write about the courts without reluctance, but with care and faith. A private lawyer will not be valid unless the courts are valid. Several solutions in this regard seem to be absolutely necessary and obvious here. It is worth talking about it today, when their implementation is impossible. Important things come from open thinking, and it’s never too early to think.

I would like to say something smart about the francs, but I am not able to. Especially when Ewa Łętowska and Leszek Balcerowicz faced each other in the dispute, i.e. two people so important that I would not mention few more important for the shape of my social thinking. In general, for all of me as I am. The difference between leftist and liberal thinking is just as irreconcilable as between liberal and conservative thinking.

Take a look at your home libraries and think about who you would be if you read all the books you have on the shelves. And yet – as you probably know – there are still many, many more of these books. This somewhat inspiring, somewhat depressing reflection has been with me since childhood. Now I am transferring it to my profession, i.e. to the profession of a lawyer.

In the previous section of my considerations (which can be called socio-legal), I argued that the legal culture of individual societies should be judged on the basis of the extent to which the law is respected for fear of punishment and responsibility, and to what extent – from the conviction that this law serves benefit all of us.

In fact, only Linkedin is suitable among social media for lawyers. Facebook can do more harm than help. A professional should answer the question if I would have used another professional if I had found him on Facebook or Instagram, and found out about his four red cats.

I remember a certain Finn’s name, Henrik Hastö, being intensely warned about what his EU country entered into for a lawyer. I believed him, nodded my head, but rather without conviction.

How should society’s attitude to law be examined? In declarations, polls, interviews? No no no. The attitude to the law, or to the regulatory mechanisms of society in general, must be tested in action. That is, in mechanical, repetitive, unintentional acts, in the first system according to the Kahneman and Tversky typology.

We lawyers, we know court law and theoretically we should persuade our clients to go to court when necessary.
Meanwhile, our first, best piece of advice we’ve given our clients for many years is just: don’t go to court. Avoid the court. Seek any other solution, NOT THE COURT.
And that lawyer who tells you something else, dear client, he does it for his own interest. So he’s cheating on you. Or out of stupidity. Or he doesn’t understand your situation, so much so that you’d better find another lawyer.

Two great European courts, the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg and the Court of Justice of the European Union based in Luxembourg are the last hope for many Europeans, especially for societies and nations injured and exposed to authoritarians from bygone eras in power.
However, while the Court in Luxembourg is an EU court, which thus benefits from the institutional and jurisdictional integrity of the EU legal system, which allows for correspondingly higher requirements, the Court in Strasbourg assesses the rule of law in countries belonging to the Council of Europe.
