Strasbourg, 25 October 2012 - Celebrated every year on 25 October, the European Day of Civil Justice is aimed for European citizens, students and professionals in the field of justice. It is organised by the Council of Europe and the European Commission.

 

One of the Council of Europe’s missions is to support initiatives aimed to bring justice closer to citizens by offering them the opportunity to inform them on their rights and to better undestand the functioning of the judicial systems through events organised mainly by courts. The work of the European Commission for the efficiency of justice (CEPEJ) which represents a real support for justice professionals, are highlighted on this occasion.


The 2012 European Crystal Scales of Justice prize for innovative court practices was awarded today to the Regional Court of Antwerp (Belgium) for its efforts consented to the follow-up of judicial expertise.

  

Three special mentions were also given to projects from France, Spain and Slovenia:

·The co-hearing of the judge to family affairs – Auditor of children, presented by the Regional Court of Tarascon (France)

· Lexnet, presented by the General Secretariat of justice administration (Spain)

· Judicial data warehouse and performance dashboards, presented by the Supreme Court of Slovenia
