The Judicial Superior Council (JSC) functions as an independent body that provides general oversight of the judiciary, including the approval of judicial appointments, monitoring the performances of courts and judges, carrying out disciplinary actions, as well as proposing reforms to the judiciary.

The Judicial Superior Council is currently working on a number of initiatives meant to improve its administrative and oversight capacities, including a formal judicial evaluation system. This should simultaneously improve communication with the Lebanese citizen.

The JSC believes that a formal judicial evaluation system would improve the performance of individual judges and thus the judiciary as a whole. The JSC thus decided that greater knowledge of the German system of judge evaluation could be extremely beneficial, i.e. would help to improve current efforts to enhance the monitoring of judge performance.

The conference aimed at establishing a methodology for the evaluation of Lebanese judges, that is, establishing criteria for the judicial evaluation process (data collection, synthesis, analysis and usage, behavior-based instruments and defining information sources). Performance indicators and the German judge’s evaluation process (duration of proceedings, caseload per judge, clearance rate, judicial quality, cost per case) were presented and evaluation criteria (e.g. independence, impartiality)discussed.
