As regards judicial reform, it is important to note that in the recent past Uzbekistan has successfully met the challenge of forming a unified judicial system.
The legal foundations of the system of independence and legal guarantees for judges are enshrined in the Constitution of the Republic of Uzbekistan, the Law on Courts, and other legislative acts.
The status of judges, guarantees of their independence, and requirements for candidates and elected officials have been developed in accordance with international standards. The document amended the disciplinary responsibility of judges, specified the grounds and procedure for termination of judges' powers, and provided for social protection of judges.
For appointment or election as a judge of a district or city court the minimum length of service in the legal profession is set at 7 years instead of 5 years, for a regional judge - 10 years instead of 7 years, for a judge of the Supreme Court - 15 years instead of 10 years.
In a word, democratization of judicial system, improvement of quality and efficiency of justice, strengthening of independence and accountability of the judiciary, in a word, reforms in this important sphere are consistently realized in our country.
