Uzbekistan: Development of judicial system

Uzbekistan has maintained the consistent work on modernization of all areas of its legal activity as a part of its prompt response to the challenges of the modern world.

The judicial system in the country is being developed and reformed. Courts in Uzbekistan plan to adopt the best practices of Kazakhstan, Russia, Turkey, United States, Germany and Japan. According to Kazakh experts, the move would allow Uzbekistan to improve its legal structure, improve efficiency and innovate the trainings of judges and qualified legal staffs.
