Report published by the European Commission on 8 July 2021, delivering the annual EU Justice Scoreboard.

Further information:

The EU Justice Scoreboard is a comparative overview of the efficiency, quality and independence of justice system in all Member States of the European Union (EU).

This year's Scoreboard focused on the digitalisation of justice, which kept courts functioning during the COVID-19 (coronavirus) pandemic and more generally made justice systems more accessible and efficient. For the first time, the report takes stock of how advances judicial authorities are in the digital transformation. The Scoreboard highlights the persisting challenges as regards the public perception of judicial independence. It also offers two new indicators comprising an overview of the bodies and authorities involved in the appointment of Supreme Court judges.
