International Association Judicial Officers (UIHJ)

Paris, France
Joined March 2017

enforcement; civil procedure; legal reform; institution building

Focus: Education, Governance, Accountability & Transparency, Livelihoods, Traditional / Customary Justice

UIHJ represents its members to international organisations and ensure collaboration with national professional bodies. It works to improve national procedural law and international treaties and makes every effort to promote ideas, projects and initiatives which help to move forward and elevate the independent status of officers of Court.

Furthermore, the Union takes part in the structural actions of officers of Court, notably via its involvement in the setting up and development of national professional organisations with a view to their becoming members of the UIHJ.

It participates in investigation missions in relation to governments and international bodies.

Lastly it promotes, wherever possible, the creation of a body of officers of Court made up of professionals and high-level legal officers fulfilling the task of the officer responsible both for the service of judicial and extra-judicial documents and the enforcement of orders.

After playing an active role in establishing the profession of the self-employed officer of Court in Central and Eastern Europe, the association has been closely involved throughout Africa and has acted as the driving force in the establishment of judicial officers with a highly regarded professional status.

UIHJ continues to be active on the American continent, particularly in the USA, South America and the Caribbean. It is also increasing its exchanges with countries in Asia in a bid to encourage them to swell the ranks of those organisations already members.

In a global marketplace dominated to a large extent by economics, judicial officers must fullfill their role by reinforcing the existence and status of the law.As far as enforcement law is concerned, the Association proposes to employ its experience and influence profitably to ensure that wherever possible, the court decisions are enforced with maximum effectiveness.
