The Division of Case-law and Research daily works not only on case-law of the Supreme Court, but also follows the judicial rulings of other countries and international courts. As a result, the first review of rulings is prepared. In this review can be found a brief summary of the most interesting rulings from the first half of 2016 or other topical issues.

This time, the review covers the summary of ruling of the Supreme Court, the European Court of Justice, the European Court of Human Rights and the German Federal Constitutional Court – on total analyzed 19 rulings.

It is planned that the Department of the Case-law and Research will prepare these interesting and topical reviews of rulings at least twice a year. The first compilation of rulings is prepared as an annex to the Bulletin of the Supreme Court. It is available only in electronic form. But it is expected that in nearest future it will also be added to the printed version of the Bulletin.

"The Review of separate rulings of the Supreme Court and other judicial institutions" is available at the webpage of the Supreme Court under section About/ Information materials/ The Supreme Court Bulletin / Bulletin Annex (only in Latvian).
