SUPREME COUNCIL OF JUSTICE AND RELATED BODIES IN FOREIGN COUNTRIES: TYPOLOGICAL CLASSIFICATION

Keywords: judiciary, constitutional-legal status, judicial councils, classification features, European integration

Abstract

In the modern context of transformations, the realm of social relations that determines the fundamentals of the functioning of the judiciary, particularly in recent decades, increasingly needs constitutional consolidation. This essentially concerns the bodies similar to the Supreme Council of Justice of Ukraine. The national legislation of Ukraine has well-defined provisions on the procedure of staffing, quantitative and organizational constitution of the Supreme Council of Justice in Ukraine. However, the world constitutional practice differently defines the status of bodies similar to the Supreme Council of Justice. Thus, the availability of bodies equal to the Supreme Council of Justice of Ukraine provides for an option of their grouping depending on the place or role, which the above bodies assume in the system of public authorities. That kind of classification aims to outline the general and specific features characterizing the legal status of the abovementioned bodies that will facilitate involving foreign practices into the national legislation of Ukraine and contribute to its improvement in terms of the functioning of the Supreme Council of Justice of Ukraine. Research methodology relies on using a set of methods that assist in achieving the scientific purpose. Such a set primarily consists of dialectical and system-structural methods, formal logic (analysis, synthesis, generalization) and comparative-legal one, which make it possible to handle the texts of statutory acts and doctrinal sources and help forward formulating the author’s standpoint meeting the research purpose.
