EUROPAN COMMISSION FOR THE EFFICIENCY OF JUSTICE (CEPEJ)

File : Impact of the publication of the 2012 edition of the CEPEJ evaluation report of European judicial systems

Ireland

20th CEPEJ plenary meeting, 6 and 7 December 2012 in Strasbourg

The Irish article mentions the budget allocated to justice and recalls that it is slightly above the average of the member states of the Council of Europe.

The Irish article reports that Ireland is one of the most generous in matter of amounts allocated under legal aid.

The Irish newspaper reports that taxes and court fees represented 32% of the courts’ budget, a result largely below other member states of the Council of Europe where taxes constitute the majority of the courts’ income.

The Irish article reports that the Irish judges’ income is one of the highest in Europe.

Regarding the frequency of litigation in Ireland, the article notes that Northern Europe societies, such as Ireland, are less likely to go to courts but it explains that some cases were assigned to administrative institutions instead of courts.
