2010-2011 Project on Councils for the Judiciary

One of the Strategic Objectives of the ENCJ, as set out in the Strategic Plan, is to promote the development of independent Councils for the Judiciary. In 2010/2011 a project team set out to develop the first part of a Handbook on Councils for the Judiciary. The report on Councils for the Judiciary that was drafted by the project team contains a set of recommendations dealing with the composition, presidency and powers of Councils for the Judiciary. It also considers the participation of the Minister of Justice in the Council and the relation between the Council and the other State Powers.  The next step will be to to collect all relevant materials from the ENCJ Members with the aim to develop a handbook on Councils for the Judiciary.
