Annual Judges’ Conference 2018

Today marks the beginning of the traditional Annual Judges’ Conference taking place every year in Vrnjacka Banja. As announced by the president of the Supreme Court of Cassation, Dragomir Milojević, at the opening of the conference, within three major topics – judiciary today, laws and their application, and current issues in case law – subjects such as independence and efficiency of the judiciary, position of judges and current situation in courts, fight against corruption, case law harmonization and protection of human rights, courts and media, as well as other numerous topics from civil, criminal, misdemeanor, administrative and enforcement matter, will be discussed. USAID Rule of Law Project is actively participating and supporting the conference this year as well.

An awards ceremony for the best performing courts in the past year was held at the cocktail reception on the first day of the conference. With support from the World Bank’s Multi Donor Trust Fund, the Supreme Court of Cassation gave out awards in several categories. The Second Basic Court in Belgrade was awarded for innovations in case management as recognition of efforts that court staff invested in developing an application that improved the service of process procedures in one of the largest courts o the country. Tatjana Jeremic, the court president, received the award on behalf of the court.

The application has considerably enhanced the work operations in the expedition office of the court as it allows scanning of QR codes which contain information on the sender/recipient. This makes the whole process automated so that one employee can complete the amount of work in a day that previously took three employees.   

USAID Rule of Law Project partnered with the court on developing this innovative application by providing the QR cameras and we will provide continuous support to the court on further improving this application.
