Teachers of social science improve knowledge in the Supreme Court

So this issue was discussed extensively on the 25th of October, at the seminar for managers of Methodological Associations of Teachers of Social Science organised by National Centre for Education in cooperation with the Supreme Court.

Great interest in the conference dedicated to judicature confirms significance of work of the Supreme Court

“The main function and routine of the Supreme Court is litigation in appellate and cassation instances. During fifteen years of operation approximately 50,000 cases were reviewed in the Supreme Court – 25,000 of them were reviewed in the Senate and as many cases – in Chambers. This performance should be evaluated not only as a great amount of work reviewed, but also as an essential contribution in interpretation of legal principles and legal standards and creation of judicature. In its turn, it has more or less provided a uniform case-law in all courts and understanding of justice in general society. This is the second function of the Supreme Court, and, in my opinion, it has been executed rather successfully”, said Ivars Bickovics, the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court, on the 15th of October, while opening the international conference “the judicature of the Supreme Court and its role in development of legal thought in Latvia”, dedicated to 15th anniversary of operation of the Senate and Chambers of the Supreme Court.
