PRACTICAL INFORMATION

Description: 

This conference is aimed at judges from all branches of jurisdictions and at public prosecutors, from other EU Member States as well.The judiciary constitutes the autonomous third power and is made up of independent judges. This conference focuses on the question of what institutional conditions must exist to preserve this independence. There will also be discussions on the degree to which the organisation of the court administration – the structures of which are currently being re-evaluated in many countries – affects the realisation of this constitutional principle. In addition, eminent judges from England, France, Italy, Spain and other European countries will elucidate the judicial profession, the organisation of the court system, as well as historical and especially current developments within the justice system in their own countries, and will discuss these topics with the participants from a comparative point of view.Most presentations will be held in English or German.
