Summary/Abstract: The Program for Judicial Reform in Bulgaria has been drafted by eminent Bulgarian lawyers within the framework of the Judicial Reform Initiative (JRI). The latter benefits from the combined efforts of State authorities, representatives of influential non-governmental organizations, and experts who offer their expertise in order to ensure further successful development of judicial reform in Bulgaria. The first draft of this Program was presented for discussion to the principal stakeholders of the JRI at a workshop in July 1999 from major stakeholders in the reform process such as the Ministry of Justice; the Supreme Judicial Council; associations and guilds of the legal profession; concerned non-governmental organizations; representatives of the media; independent legal experts and the Bulgarian citizenry. The amended and revized Program incorporates the comments, suggestions and notes provided and is representative for the state of the Bulgarian judiciary and the legislation as to May 2000.
