Recent developments in the judicial field

A new law on the federal court is to come into force in 2007, concerning in particular access to the Federal Court: simplification of the appeals procedure (the number of types of appeals is to be reduced from 20 to 4), possibility of communicating with the Court electronically, all court decisions to be referred to a court of appeal at cantonal level before they can be referred to the Federal Court.
