How do legal practitioners talk about constitutional crises, including ones where issues of public trust and public and elite loyalty are in play? This paper aims at analysing competing narratives about the rule of law crisis in Poland. It is based on empirical research—interviews with current and former judges and assistants of the Constitutional Tribunal; it further employs an analysis of the discourse produced by these actors in their public and scholarly interventions. The paper attempts to analyse the underlying ideological assumptions of diverse constitutional narratives, and how they operate in the public and academic sphere.
