Description In Lithuania, there are 22 courts of general jurisdiction and special jurisdiction. The judicial system has 3,439 workers, 750 of whom are judges. At the end of 2019, there was a shortage of 37 judges and 206 members of the judge team. According to the audit, Lithuania is ranked 8th among EU countries according to the number of judges per 100,00 inhabitants (27 judges). The number of civil cases received is also high: in the EU, we are the second with the highest number of cases per 100 inhabitants (4 cases). In 2019, 214,000 cases were received, of which around 75% are civil cases. One of the reasons for the high number of cases received is that within 12 years there was no agreement on what functions should be attributed only to the court as the sole administration of justice. The National Audit Office of Lithuania recommends creating appropriate conditions for the administration of justice and ensuring the consistent improvement of the judicial system. This would be achieved by the planned long-term priorities and objectives for the improvement of the judicial system, abandonment of functions which are not specific to courts, and adequate conditions for specialisation of judges.
