Summary/Abstract: The right to a fair trial is guaranteed by Article 45 of the Constitution of the Republic of Poland, as part of the regulations concerning the freedoms, rights and duties of the citizen. The regulation is twofold in nature and has been subject to constant changes. The placement of the discussed regulation in Chapter II of the Constitution gives it the rank of a fundamental right. The functioning of the contemporarily instituted mechanisms which guarantee the access to the right to a fair trial remains predicated to a certain extent on the experiences acquired in the process of the changes in law and society. These changes have certainly exerted a fair amount of influence on the functioning of the mechanisms granting the right to a fair trial.
