About the Technical Office

 

The Technical Office of the Cassation Court was created in accordance with regulation number (7) for the year 2010, enforced on 18/04/2010, and imposed under article (12) from the Regular Court Formation Law number (17) of 2007.

The Judicial Council decided to mandate a judge from the Cassation Court to work as a General Manager of the office and appoint four judges to work with the Technical Office.

 

In March 2011, and with the move of the Cassation Court to new premises, the Technical Office became operational.  A Cassation Court judge, mandated by the Judicial Council, serves as the Office’s General Manager in addition to support provided by four judges appointed by the Council.

 

Primary Objectives of the Technical Office:

1.      Support technical and administrative issues relating to the Cassation Court, including case classifications and distribution of registered motions to judges chambers according to competence.             Provide chambers with required legislation, precedents, and legal research related to cases being studied.

2.      Extract legal principles as determined by the Cassation Court’s judgment, tabulate it, and follow due procedures to facilitate its publishing.

3.       Analyze legal precedents and provide the Cassation Court President with findings and studies that adhere to legal principles.

 4.      Provide Courts with accurate information and appropriate legislation and legal precedents.

5.      Perform any other duties assigned by the Council or by the Cassation Court President.

In addition to providing summarizations and research analysis on legal matters, the Technical Office is also responsible for the circulation of decisions derived from the Cassation Court’s public commission regarding current and controversial topics from other courts. Furthermore, the Technical Office provides judges with legal precedents derived from Jordan’s Cassation Court and from the Cassation Courts of neighboring Arab countries.

The Technical Office has taken the initiative of electronically archiving all decisions issued by the Cassation Court since its inception. The newly archived decisions will result in increased productivity and enhanced efficiency.
