Why Reform the Justice System in Cyprus?

At the heart of these reforms of the justice system in Cyprus is an acknowledgment of the critical need to address the slow pace of justice - a concern that has long been echoed by citizens, businesses, and international observers. The measures being undertaken are comprehensive, targeting various facets of the judicial process to ensure it is not just swift but also more accessible and in tune with the modern demands of society.

What Changes Are Being Introduced?

Among the notable initiatives introduced are:

  • Legislative Reforms: The legal system is undergoing significant reorganization, which includes the enactment of new laws aimed at streamlining processes and cutting down on delays.

  • Promotion of Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR): ADR methods offer a faster, more cost-effective means to resolve disputes compared to traditional court proceedings. Their promotion is poised to reduce the backlog of cases significantly.

  • Digitization of the Judicial Process: Leveraging technology to digitize the judicial process is a game-changer. This initiative will make legal services more accessible and expedite the handling of cases.

  • Establishment of New Courts: The creation of specialized courts, such as the Supreme Constitutional and Commercial Courts, aims at improving judicial efficiency, particularly in handling complex legal matters.
