The training courses, which will be provided from September 2019 to July 2020, will cover 1,500 judges of the courts of the regular and special jurisdictions in Serbia.
The lecturers are the judges – the members of the first-instance and the second-instance disciplinary bodies of the High Judicial Council.
The purpose of the training courses is raising awareness of the judicial office holders of the objective, nature and importance of disciplinary liability for their professional attitude towards the work, as well as a more detailed familiarization with the behaviours that may constitute the basis for disciplinary liability. This training is particularly important in view of the fact that the topic of disciplinary liability of judges has multiple significance both for the independence of the judiciary, the integrity of judges, the trust of the citizens and the reputation of the judiciary, and for the progress of Serbia on its European path.
