The CEPEJ-STAT, the European Commission for the Efficiency of Justice (CEPEJ) of the Council of Europe, published a report, which contains findings about the main trends observed in 45 European countries in the field of the functioning of judicial systems. In addition to the report, the CEPEJ-STAT opened access to a new interactive database, which enables viewing information by the country.

The report provides a detailed overview of the performance of the judicial systems, their budgets, the situation of judges, prosecutors, and lawyers, as well as the organisation of courts in the 45 participating member States and in one CEPEJ observer State (Israel).

As far as lawyers are concerned, the report contains data on the number of lawyers in each state or entity, with the specification whether this figure includes or not legal advisors who cannot represent their clients in court. Furthermore, the paper draws attention to the issue of lawyers’ monopoly on legal representation. For a more detailed information, please see the Chapter 3.4 (pages 158-163) of the report.

The report also gives information on the Annual public budget allocated to legal aid (pages 66-79).

The new interactive database is of particular interest as it has a specific section devoted to country-specific data, including a chapter on lawyers.
