Evaluation of Judicial Performance

On the request of Chief Justice Odoki of Uganda, the Group, at its 4th Meeting in Vienna in 2005, focused on the evaluation of judicial performance. A paper by a European expert facilitated a discussion that covered both common law and civil law systems. The Group agreed to consider whether any checklist to measure judicial performance could be recommended so as to reflect objective considerations whilst at the same time respecting the immeasurable values which the judiciary defends.
