Reform of the judicial system has been discussed in Italy for a long
time, not least because its many problems are by now well known in
Europe too, showing time and time again that the country is out of step
with the European Community’s institutions. There has been no lack
of initiatives to remedy this situation; indeed, they have followed one
another at regular intervals, though often with disappointing results.
However, since the significant changes in the 1960s and 1970s to the
laws governing the career progression of judicial personnel, there have
been few, and for the most part ineffectual, attempts at reform with
regard to the statutes relating to the ordinary judiciary. The reforms
have affected the administration of justice in different ways, both in
terms of substance and in terms of judicial procedure, but they have
not so far concerned judicial personnel, even though the latter are an
essential element in the smooth operation of the judiciary.
