Course Description

Under the supervision of Chantal BUSSIERE, Honorary First President, former member of the Conseil supérieur de la magistrature – The High Council for the Judiciary, and Jean-Marie HUET, Honorary General Prosecutor, former member of the Conseil supérieur de la magistrature – The High Council for the Judiciary.

This session will examine the principles of independence and impartiality that should govern the action of judges in a democratic system, enabling them to respond to the trust that the public places in them. While the system must guarantee judges the means to perform their duties in accordance with these principles, they must also be accountable. In addition to sanctions, judicial ethics must also be approached through the prism of positive ethics, i.e. the dissemination of rules and values to guide judges in their actions.

The session will be built around the following activities: presentations of the main actors in this field and networks working on these issues at international level; theoretical and comparative law perspective; workshops on practical cases.
