Polish-Lithuanian Judge Exchange
District courts of Vilnius and Gdansk will participate in a judge exchange organised by the European Judicial Training Network. The courts’ representatives will try out one of the newest methods of judicial cooperation. While working in the court of the neighbouring country they will share their experiences and solve international legal problems.
The judges from Gdansk will arrive in Vilnius in October, while the judges from Vilnius will come to Poland in November. Participants will have the opportunity to get to know the everyday work of their colleagues from the neighbouring country, to visit legal institutions and to learn about legal mechanisms of the country they visit.
“Our court cooperates with Gdansk District Court since two years. We hope that the Polish judges will use the experience accumulated by the Vilnius judges and that our specialists will bring from Gdansk a new perspective on cases, that helps in solving national and international legal issues” – said Vytautas Zelianka, the chairman of the Vilnius District Court.
During those visits, the specialists will discuss changes in legal systems, organization and optimization of work, and cooperation within the European Union.
