Today, on its website and in the CEPEJ-STAT system, the CEPEJ publishes the contribution from the International Union of Judicial Officers (UIHJ) to the specific study of the CEPEJ on the legal professions. This study includes the 2014 CEPEJ data, enhanced by examples relating to the practices and experience of judicial officers in the Member States. This is the second contribution from professionals, further to that of the Council of the Notariats of the European Union (CNUE).
Established in 1952, the UIHJ is a body composed of 93 members. Its purpose is to make representations on behalf of its members to international organisations and ensure collaboration with national professional bodies. It also works to improve national procedural law and international treaties and makes every effort to promote ideas, projects and initiatives which help to move forward and elevate the independent status of officers of Court. The UIHJ has an observer status at the CEPEJ-GT-EVAL (CEPEJ Working Group on the Evaluation of Judicial Systems).
