20th CEPEJ plenary meeting, 6 and 7 December 2012 in Strasbourg

    Tour de table: how has the CEPEJ Report “European judicial systems –2012 edition” been received and used in the member States?

    ∑ The Ministry of Justice and Public Administation of the Republic of Slovenia has sent a special notice to courts, the State Prosecutor's Office, the Slovenian Bar Association, the Chamber of Notaries of Slovenia and the law faculties, informing them of the publication of the CEPEJ European Judicial Systems Report - 2012 Edition, together with the link to the published Report.
    ∑ In its message the Ministry asked the recipients to inform judges, prosecutors, attorneys, notaries and law professors about the publication of the Report. The Ministry has also ordered the translation of a document presenting the report (an overview) in Slovenian that will be published on its web-site. It is reasonable to expect that as with the previous editions of the CEPEJ Report, the data and conclusions of the Report will be used in the preparation of strategic documents of the Ministry.
    ∑ The CEPEJ Evaluation report on the functioning of judicial systems 2012 has been analysed by dr. Matej Avbelj (Dean and lecturer at the Graduate School of Government and European Studies in Kranj) in widely read column - published by a juridical portal (IUS-INFO) on the 12th of October 2012.
