Judicial self-government institutions are independent institutions, and their work is regulated by the law “On Judicial Power” and the Judicial Disciplinary Liability Law.

Institutions are not subjected to the Council for the Judiciary; however, the Council for the Judiciary promotes their foundation and operation – convenes judges’ conferences, at which self-government institutions are elected  and their reports are heard, and approves their by-laws (except for the Disciplinary Committee).
