Reform progress in 2017
Law on the Constitutional Court of Ukraine (CCU)
This law unblocks the work of the CCU and enables the appointment of new judges to vacant positions. Citizens are given the right to make a constitutional complaint, i.e. an appeal to the CCU.
Changes in the codes of justice procedures
The new versions of the codes clear the way for the introduction of "e-justice" and contain a number of other innovations: the opportunity to simplify and accelerate the hearing of simple cases, new methods for legal protection and securing claims, etc. At the same time, the final version includes the Lozovyi amendments, which significantly increase the operational burden on courts, although this problem is not new.
