Welcome to the website of the High Council for Justice

The High Council of Justice (HCJ) helps the Belgian justice system to operate better by playing a decisive role in the selection and appointment of judges, through external control via audits, the handling of particular investigations and complaints and by making recommendations and giving opinions.
