Justice and society
 

In 2005, the Consultative Council of European Judges adopted opinion no7 on "justice and society".

In this regard, the CCJE proposed that the following points which appear in the Framework Global Action Plan for Judges in Europe be considered:
- the educational role of the courts in a democracy, relations with the public;
- relations with all those involved in court proceedings;
- accessibility, simplification and clarity of the language used by the courts in proceedings and decisions ;

This work was carried out on the basis of the replies by delegations to a questionnaire on "justice and society".
