One of the most important event, was carrying a solemn event dedicated to 20th anniversary of the restoration of state independence of Azerbaijan.  A new form of judicial power is the product of national independence.

    In past years, several works were carried out concerning the execution of decrees of the President of the Republic of Azerbaijan Mr. IlhamAliyev in the judicial system, and for the improvement and modernization of the Supreme Court.

    Chairman of the Supreme Court noted that after the accession of the Republic of Azerbaijan to the European Convention on Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms, the case law of the European Court of Justice is essential for our legal system.  The recognition by the state the jurisdiction of the European Court, especially beneficial for the citizens of Azerbaijan. Citizens have the opportunity to appeal to the European Court of Human Rights, the requirements to the activity of courts and law enforcement have increased. Due to the importance of assimilation of the international law by judges who administer justice, and  application of international standards of human rights by them, the international legal acts, especially the European Convention’s precedent law on “Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms” are studied at the seminars which are held in the Supreme Court every week. Roundtables are held with the participation of judges and representatives of the international organizations are invited. Familiarization visits which help to learn judicial practice of the European states are organized.
