Official Commissions

Magistrates and former magistrates are called upon to sit on official commissions when laws or regulations provide so. These are essentially official commissions whose field of competence is related to a profession or a theme covering the judicial field.

In application of the provisions laid down in laws or regulations, the Commission de gestion du Pouvoir judiciaire appoints or designates to the appointing authority the magistrate or former magistrate who is to become a member of the official commission.

The work of the secretariats of the official commissions is carried out by the administration of the State of Geneva. All detailed information concerning the official commissions, their composition and their activities, is available on the dedicated website of the State of Geneva.
