The Supreme Court of the Czech Republic seated in Brno is the highest judicial authority both in civil and criminal matters except for issues dealt with by the Constitutional Court of the Czech Republic and the Supreme Administrative Court.
The Supreme Court of the Czech Republic has been issuing the Supreme Court Yearbook since 2015. This year, we would like to introduce to you the Supreme Court Yearbook 2019. The Yearbook provides information on the decision-making practice of the Criminal division as well as the Civil and Commercial Division of the Supreme Court for the previous year. Although the number of appeals filed decreased slightly in 2019 in comparison to the previous years, the judges of the Court ruled in thousands of cases. Annotations of the most important decisions are included in the Yearbook. It also contains a list of judges and judges-interns of the Supreme Court and summarises the work of the organisational units and departments of the administration of the Court. We wish you a pleasant reading.
