Singapore Supreme Court hosts ASEAN chief justices

ASEAN chief justicesOn August 23, Singapore’s Supreme Court hosted the first formal gathering of ASEAN chief justices. This inaugural event coincided with the 35th annual ASEAN Law Association Governing Council meeting.

The ASEAN chief justices are now expected to meet every year to promote further integration of legal systems across ASEAN, which will be necessary for the formation of the 2015 ASEAN Economic Community.

There is much that needs to be synchronised in these diverse legal systems, including standardized procedures for ensuring common compliance with international laws and treaties.

Such integration of laws across the ASEAN region is likely to be one of the more difficult aspects of building the ASEAN Economic Community, as it  requires relinquishing a degree of sovereignty. Chief justices of the Supreme Courts of each country are in key positions to influence domestic acceptance of changes to legal systems, and therefore it is crucial that these officials work together and coordinate a common set of goals.

Among the issues discussed by the chief justices on August 23 was the creation of an internet portal to both improve the flow of information between ASEAN judiciaries and to provide the public with detailed information on changes to legal systems and the emerging ASEAN legal order as it develops. This portal is expected to go online within 2014.
