Judicial officials of the European Judicial Training Network visited the Constitutional Court

30 June 2022 - Judge Dr Mario Jelušić received several EU judicial officials whom the Croatian Judicial Academy hosted within the European Judicial Training Network (EJTN) Exchange Programme. The Network, which was created in 2000, aims at a fostering common legal and judicial European culture. The Exchange Programme was launched at the initiative of the European Parliament, and first implemented in 2005, with the financial support of the European Union. Judge Jelušić introduced the colleagues to functioning and organisation of the Croatian Constitutional Court, specially emphasising that the Court is not part of the judiciary. They also talked, among other things, about the election of Constitutional Court judges, given that in Croatia it starts with a public tender, and about differences in jurisdiction in relation to several European Constitutional Courts.
