The paper is inspired by the article O dobro adwokatury polskiej written by Professor Maurycy Allerhand and published in this volume of “The Voice of Law”. By applying the results of the historical-comparative study of the ratio (sense, justification) of prescription, the author disagrees with Professor Allerhand’s opinion that it is dishonourable for an attorney to use the defence of prescription if the claim is justified. Some of Professor Allerhand’s remarks on the role of legal history are also discussed.
