CEPEJ report on the functioning of judicial systems
With a report and a new interactive database (CEPEJ-STAT) , the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) of the Council of Europe has recently published its findings as regards the main trends observed in 45 European countries in the field of the functioning of judicial systems.
The report provides a detailed picture of the performance of the judicial systems, their budgets, the situation as regards judges, prosecutors and lawyers, and the organisation of courts in the 45 participating member States and in one CEPEJ observer State (Israel). The report and the database constitute a reference point for all policy makers and justice professionals, to be used when developing public policies on the organisation of judicial systems. They are complemented by a new comprehensive thematic report devoted to the use of information technologies in courts.
Furthermore, chapter 3.4 (page 158) of the report deals with lawyers.
