The purpose of the Res Iudicata Association, as set out in its Bylaws, is to promote, through its outreach and educational activities, the awareness of the law and the acceptance of the values of the rule of law in society, to deepen the recognition of the judicial profession and to increase public confidence in the judiciary. Therefore, we consider it important to ensure that people can learn and understand the functioning of the judiciary, the specificities of judicial work and the path leading to judicial decisions in a wider society.
In the course of our work and as private citizens, we are asked many questions on a daily basis that show that the judiciary is still the least understood branch of power, but still comes into contact with almost everyone in the course of some proceedings in their lives, and our work is often the focus of public interest and social criticism. Therefore, we consider it one of the main activities of the Association to organise and participate in public events, presentations and discussions with an active judicial role in order to make the activities of the courts more understandable and to bring judges closer to the people whose cases they decide.
In our new program, we talk to the employees of the Dózsa György street homeless shelter so that they can provide even more effective help with our contribution. Our members, dr. Adrienn Laczó and dr. Zoltán Gebe, started a crash course in criminal procedure right away.
Cooperation with MENSA Hungariqa
We are pleased to report that our association has entered into cooperation with the Mensa Hungariqa Association. As part of this, we will launch a wide-ranging series of programs from March. At the events we will talk about general and special topics concerning law and courts among the members of the Mensa Hungariqa Association and our invitees.
On April 19, 2022, we had our second conversation at Mensa. Katalin Ocskó family law judge and Ibolya Hirtling criminal judge talked about what and how to do if children drift/enter the machinery of justice as interested, witnesses, victims or even perpetrators. We got a lot of questions, we tried to answer them.
