The "Crystal Scales of Justice" Prize


 

Created in 2005, the "Crystal Scales of Justice" Prize is a competition aimed at discovering and highlighting innovative and efficient practices concerning the functioning of justice, judicial procedures or the organisation of courts.

 

These practices are conducted in European jurisdictions (for example, initiatives devised by a court president, a registry, a Bar). They are drawn to the attention of policy-makers and the judicial community so as to improve the functioning of the public justice system.

 

In 2017, the Crystal Scales of Justice Prize awarding ceremony will take place in Edinburgh (United Kingdom) on 27 October 2017, in the framework of the celebration of the European Day of Justice.

 

2017 edition of the Crystal Scales of Justice Prize

 

 Out of 37 applications from 18 countries and also from two international institutions, the jury, composed of justice professionals, shortlisted four projects, which will be presented at the Crystal Scales of Justice Prize awarding ceremony in Edinburgh on 27 October 2017.

 

The four initiatives are:

- Court Pulse - The Management Revolution, by the Judicial-Legal Council and Institute of Law and Human Rights/Academy of Sciences of Azerbaijan;

- Educational Programme “Judiciary: informed choice and public confidence. Open Courts and Prosecutors’ Offices”, by the Supreme Judicial Council of the Republic of Bulgaria;

- Migrants – Courts of Catania and discharging appeals against the action taken by the Territorial Commissions for International Protection, by the Court of Catania, Italy;

- Witness Service in Norwegian courts, by the Norwegian Courts Administration.

The Crystal Scales of Justice Prize will be awarded to one of these 4 projects, and the remaining 3 will receive a special mention from the jury.
