Independence of the judiciary is expressed not only as independent administering of justice (in narrower meaning), but also as system of judicial careers, which is apolitical and based solely on professionalism. Independent system of judicial self-government plays a significant role in it.
Judicial self-government institutions are:
- The Judicial Qualification Committee;
- The Judicial Disciplinary Committee;
- The Judicial Ethics Commission
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).
