The article is dedicated to the preparatory works on the court system in Poland in the interwar period. The author discusses in detail subsequent projects and deliberations within the Polish Codification Commission on the status of judges and proposed methods of their appointment. The Codification Commission of the Republic of Poland was a state organ established in 1919 for the unification of the law in Poland, including the judiciary, because at the time of regaining independence several legal systems were applicable on the territory of Poland, including five basic ones in the field of court regulations. In the first period, the commission consisted of 44 eminent lawyers from all post-partition regions. The effects of the work of the Codification Commission of the Republic of Poland influenced the model of the judiciary introduced in 1928, but many solutions postulated by the Codification Commission of the Republic of Poland were never turned into binding law . During the discussion on the model of the judiciary, including the appointment of the judges, the achievements of the Polish Codification Commission of the Republic of Poland may turn out to be an interesting reference point, even though it dates back almost a hundred years, given that many problems noticed by the members of the Codification Commission of the Republic of Poland remain valid also in contemporary Europe and Poland.
