Exercise your right to be informed! – the Supreme Court encourages everyone by offering informative video material on the legal resources of the Senate available to anyone interested.

First of all, these are judgments and decisions of the Senate, which promote correct and uniform application of legal provisions and form the basis for further foreseeable case law. Knowledge of the Senate’s case law findings may help reach a solution to the conflict without addressing the court, but if the court is addressed, then to resolve it more qualitatively.

The decisions of the Senate are available in four forms - in the printed yearbooks, on the website of the Supreme Court, on the website of Latvian courts and on the website of laws and regulations. The video explains what kind of rulings are available in each of these forms and which tools can be used to search for rulings.

The video also informs about other useful resources available on the website of the Supreme Court: summaries of case law, decisions of general meetings of Senate’s departments, decisions of departmental sittings, rulings (translated into Latvian) and summaries of decisions of the European Court of Human Rights, as well as rulings and case law findings of the Latvian Senate (1918–1940).

The legal resources of the Senate can be useful for those applying laws and regulations, researchers, and students. The Supreme Court welcomes and expands the availability and search of its rulings and other resources.

 Exercise your right to be informed! Follow the case law of the Senate and be informed, both on a daily basis and when resolving disputes in court!
