While Law & Emotions movement made large waves in the international academic community in the last 30 years, it remains virtually unknown in Poland. However, applying perspectives of this multidisciplinary research enterprise in Polish law and jurisprudence could yield promising results. As the field is vast and consists of many voices, an attempt at consolidating its findings and demonstrating their relevance is needed. The objective of the text is thus to provide a cross-section of this influential movement and point out why it potentially revolutionizes thinking about law. To this end, the text analyses a body of works dealing with the relationship between law and emotion, evaluates their usefulness and presents the finding across a range of potential implications for: theory and philosophy of law, study of constitutional law and lawmaking, particular doctrines of law and knowledge about emotions of legal actors.
