The study presents issues discussed during the Vth Cracow Penal Forum concerning the interpretation of substantive and procedural criminal law in compliance with the constitutional rules. The deliberations focused on three fundamental issues. First of them concerned problems with obligatory imposition of prohibition of operating vehicles for life. Next one focused on procedural and constitutional issues of using evidence acquired by way of an offence, that is on recently introduced Article 168a of the Polish Code of Criminal Procedure. The last issue concerned regulation of recently restored institution of a judicial assessor and legality of its participation in the course of criminal trial.
