This study is a prolegomena for reflection on the legal system of church universities in Poland. This article is the first of two parts of research on this issue. In this part, attention has been focused on, firstly, the specificity of the Polish context of the issues we are interested in, and, secondly, the universities run by non-Catholic churches and religious associations. The presented specificity is also an introduction to research, which was included in a separate text “Church Universities in the Higher Education System in Poland. Part 2: Universities Run by the Catholic Church.” The material scope of Part 1 includes analyses of legal and non-legal sources regulating the functioning of non-Catholic church universities in Poland. In addition, a systemic division of these universities has been proposed, together with their description and specification of differences in legal status.
