Posted on : 23 Oct 2023
The inaugural Council of ASEAN Chief Justices’ (CACJ) Retreat was held on 20 October, alongside the 14th ALA General Assembly and ASEAN Law Conference in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Hosted by the Malaysian Judiciary, the inaugural CACJ Retreat provided the forum for the Chief Justices (CJs) to reaffirm the ASEAN Judiciaries’ strategic and cohesive approach towards deepening judicial cooperation and upholding the Rule of Law in ASEAN.
At the 10th CACJ meeting in November 2022, the CACJ agreed to convene a Retreat once every decade to reflect on CACJ’s milestones and achievements over the past ten years and chart the CACJ’s strategic agenda for the next 10 years. The CACJ continues to mature as a forum for judicial cooperation in ASEAN.
The CACJ has made significant strides since its conception in 2013. The media release for the inaugural CACJ retreat may be accessed here: Link here
