Set of conclusions adopted on 13 October 2020 by the Council of the European Union concerning further digitalisation of the European Union (EU) member states’ judicial systems.
These conclusions encourage member states to make increased use of digital tools throughout judicial proceedings and call on the European Commission to develop a comprehensive EU strategy on the digitalisation of justice by the end of 2020. They also note the need to promote digital skills in the justice sector, to allow judges, prosecutors, judicial staff and other justice practitioners to use digital tools effectively and with due respect for the rights and freedoms of those seeking justice.
The political endorsement to these conclusions was provided by the Council of the European Union on 9 October. The final adoption was conducted by the Council of the European Union on 13 October.
