The Councils for the Judiciary
 

In keeping with the terms of reference given to the CCJE by the Committee of Ministers, the CCJE will prepare an Opinion in 2007 on the Councils for the Judiciary. This Opinion would be submitted to the 8th plenary meeting of the CCJE. The CCJE adopted a questionnaire and instructed its members to reply to it by 15 January 2007, consulting the national Councils for the Judiciary where appropriate. The CCJE appointed a working group which analysed the replies to this questionnaire and prepared the draft opinion.
