Court clerks

Zwei Gerichtschreibern, die in einem Büro zusammenarbeiten

Around 240 court clerks, all of whom with legal training, work in one of the FAC's six divisions. Two to four court clerks are assigned to a single judge or are part of a pooling system where they may be assigned to work with several judges.

Their main task is to assist the judge with investigations and decisions in the case. Under the responsibility of the judge, they prepare reports and draft judgments. Court clerks act in an advisory capacity. In addition, they prepare transcripts of hearings and consultations. They are also responsible for editing and anonymising judgments that have been marked for publication and/or disclosure to third parties.
