The Federal Supreme Court of Ethiopia and the judiciary’s Inspection Directorate implemented a multidimensional judicial performance evaluation program in 2015. The system uses three sources of information: case-management data, public satisfaction (surveys administered to lawyers and the public), and individual judicial plans (judges develop and submit their own annual performance goals). The program is administered by a sub-Directorate that focuses on judicial evaluation. The Ethiopian program references a number of indicators including fairness, understanding of the law, ability to analyze evidence, case management, communication skills, and clarity of explanation to the public. The Directorate distributes surveys to the bar and the public, solicits feedback from institutional actors including the Office of the Attorney General, and schedules regular court observations. The implementation of this new program initially encountered resistance from judges and concerns about its impact on judicial independence. The initiative has not been implemented throughout the country due to limited funds and Insufficient infrastructure.
