For modern democratic nations, a strong and independent judiciary is the guarantor of the Rule of Law. The administration of justice is part of the democratic process. Thus, upholding a robust system of the administration of justice is of fundamental importance.
The Law Blog of UCLan Cyprus is happy to reproduce the Key Note Speech of Mr Justice Myron Nicolatos, President of the Supreme Court of Cyprus, delivered at the Inaugural Annual Dinner of the School of Law of UCLan Cyprus on 20 January 2017. In his speech, Justice Nicolatos provided a thorough analysis of the administration of justice in the Republic of Cyprus and answered questions from students at the core of the Rule of Law.
We therefore invite you to read a detailed historical and legal account of the administration of justice in a unique mixed legal system, the one of the Republic of Cyprus.
We hope you enjoy the reading of these materials, reproduced with the kind permission of the President of the Supreme Court of Cyprus, with our deepest gratitude.
