About Consultative Council of European Judges (CCJE)

The CCJE is an advisory body of the Council of Europe on issues relating to the independence, impartiality and competence of judges. It is the only body within an international organisation to be composed exclusively of judges, and in this respect, it is unique in Europe, indeed in the world. By establishing the CCJE, the Council of Europe gives priority attention to the status of judges and the quality of the justice system, the rule of law and the promotion and protection of human rights and fundamental freedoms depend for their implementation, on a strong and independent judiciary, mutual respect between the legislative, the executive and judicial powers, and European citizens’ increased trust in their justice system.
