Slovenia

24 and 25 October 2013

Two separate events have been organised - two separate visits to the Supreme Court of the Republic of Slovenia. The first event was demanded by law students, as the event that celebrated the European day of civil justice in 2012 was met with great enthusiasm and they contacted the Supreme Court with the idea to repeat a similar event.

On the first day, the 24th October, students from the Law Faculty at the University of Ljubljana visited the Supreme Court, where they assisted to a presentation of the Slovenian judicial system, and had the opportunity to talk to a Supreme court judge (Head of the Commercial department) about the vocation of a judge and his/her duties and  responsibilties. To have a better insight of the the interior of the Judicial palace, the students visited the major conference room, where joint sessions of the Supreme Court take place as well as one of the chambers where trials take place.

On the second day, the 25th of October, Erasmus students from different European countries currently studying at the Law Faculty at the University of Ljubljana visited the Supreme Court and assisted to a presentation of the Slovenian judicial system.
