The purpose of the Res Iudicata Association, as set out in its Bylaws, is to promote, through its professional outreach and educational activities, the legal awareness and acceptance of the values of rule of law in society, to deepen the recognition of the judicial profession and to increase public confidence in the judiciary. Therefore, the founding members consider it important that the judicial profession and the specificities of judicial work are made known and understood by a wider public.
With this aim in mind, our objective is to play an active judicial role in enhancing the knowledge of primary school leavers and secondary school students, bringing them closer to the work of judges and courts and to legal issues of interest to young people. We want to give the next generation of lawyers an even better understanding of how the judiciary works, how the judiciary makes decisions and give them a deeper knowledge of the judicial profession.
In our experience, almost everyone comes into contact with the courts in the course of some proceedings in their lifetime, and our work is often at the centre of public interest and social criticism. We therefore believe it is important to organise and participate in public events, presentations and discussions to make the activities of the courts more understandable and to bring judges closer to the people whose cases they decide.
We also aim to create a professional community spanning the different judicial disciplines, in order to give the members of the association the opportunity to present their professional achievements to a wider public.
