Reorganisation in a nutshell

* Regional courts in Trnava and Trenčín will be shut down. The remaining six regional courts are to be renamed higher courts. Higher courts should serve primarily as appeal institutions against lower courts' rulings.

* Thirteen district courts in Pezinok, Pieštany, Skalica, Bánovce nad Bebravou, Partizánske, Šala, Námestovo, Liptovský Mikuláš, Revúca, Stará Lubovňa, Kežmarok, Svidník, and Nové Mesto nad Váhom will be shut down. The current 55 district courts will be replaced by 25 local courts, while 17 will turn into detached branches.

* Judges from courts that are to be shut down will be offered work in the branch courts or be transferred to the closest courts in their areas.
