Mariusz Załucki of Andrzej Frycz Modrzewski Kracow University has made available for download his paper, “New Rules on Liability for Inheritance Debts in Poland: Road to a Single European Law?” The abstract is as follows,

Inheritance law of some European countries is going through transformation. The discussion on the future of inheritance law in Europe has not been completed yet, and it may be argued whether it has even started.

The article presents the basic problems of the new Polish legislation and suggests that this could be a starting point for discussing this area on a larger, European scale.
