Santo Domingo, WCCJ organised a training for liaison officers on contributing to the CODICES database and the Venice Forum, followed by the 14th meeting of the WCCJ Bureau.
The Constitutional Court of the Dominican Republic was hosting this event together with the Venice Commission acting as the Secretariat of the WCCJ. The training session was organised specifically for liaison officers from constitutional courts and equivalent bodies (constitutional councils and supreme courts) on using and contributing to the CODICES database and the restricted Venice Forum. Following a presentation of the IT tools that the Venice Commission provides, the participants learned how to prepare contributions to CODICES on the basis of practical examples. CODICES contains over 10 000 Court decisions together with Constitutions, laws on the Courts and court descriptions explaining their functioning. The Venice Forum is a restricted site which provides a permanent link between Constitutional Courts and Courts with equivalent jurisdiction.
