Justice ministry wants more judicial clerks

IN A LAW that is expected to speed up court proceedings, Justice Minister Daniel Lipšic wants to employ 600 additional judicial clerks in the Slovak courts in order to relieve the considerable burden of administrative work from Slovak judges.

According to the minister, if judges did not have to deal with so much paperwork, they would be able to concentrate better on delivering speedier verdicts.

The new law, which was passed by the cabinet last week, also foresees the creation of senior judicial clerks who will be entitled to prepare and analyse files, and also issue verdicts in routine court matters.
