    In Latvia, the publication of the CEPEJ Report - European Judicial Systems in the weekly „Jurista Vārds”, which is the largest information source on events in justice system, has become a tradition. The electronic version of the Report widely disseminated among courts of all levels. Certain aspects have been analysed such as the training of judges.
