This paper examines Poland's application for membership into the European Union. It focuses on the legal criteria necessary for accession. Accession into the Union requires acceptance of the acquis communautaire. Although economic criteria are mentioned in this paper as part of the discussion concerning the meeting of the Copenhagen requirements, there is no in depth analysis. Poland provides a good example of a former eastern block country seeking accession into the Union. Since accession requirements are the same for all applicants, this paper also allows for an examination of legal requirements for any country seeking membership into the European Union.
