Courts use interpretation of legal norms included in judgements of the Constitutional Court in reasoning of their rulings, and it is one of sources of law courts refer to, which is used more extensively – Ivars Bickovics, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, said at the conference “Judgement of the Constitutional Court as source of law” on 5 December.

The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court pointed out that it is valuable source, as judgements of the Constitutional Court usually are expanded and well-reasoned. Courts use them as thoughts, which are already formulated and prepared, and as intensification of their reasoning. 

The Chief Justice of the Supreme Court pointed out tradition of the Constitutional Court to organise anniversary of the court in business atmosphere – at the conference dedicated to some topical aspect of work of the Constitutional Court, as valuable. The theme of this year “Judgement of the Constitutional Court as source of law” is topical for any court, as judicature of the Constitutional Court develops legal system and promotes democratic processes in the state, Ivars Bickovics said.  

Janis Neimanis, the judge of the Department of Administrative Cases of the Supreme Court, also read a report at the Conference.
