This paper gives an overview of the consequences of the entry into force of the Treaty of Lisbon in the Polish legal order. The text begins with a summary of the present legal framework concerning Polish membership in the EU. It proceeds to examine the provisions of the new Treaty which regulate the increased role of national Parliaments and reform of the system for protecting fundamental rights in the EU. Then the effects of these reforms are analysed in the context of the Polish legal system and the following issues are examined: the enhanced role of the Polish Parliament (the Sejm and the Senate); the obligations of the Government; the inter-institutional co-operation between the central governing branches; and the interpretation and application of the so-called Polish-British Protocol in light of the change in status of the EU Charter of Fundamental Rights. Finally, the question whether changes are needed in the Polish Constitution is discussed.
