The judiciary of Finland developed a pilot project for a comprehensive court performance benchmarks system; judicial performance evaluation is one component. Working groups, which include judges as members, meet every few years to develop assessment criteria for legal, judicial, and managerial skills. These metrics provide information about professional development needs but are not used as a monitoring system linked to promotion, discipline, or salary. This evaluation tool is not mandatory; judges may use all or parts of it as they deem appropriate. A court-wide benchmark system, which does not assess individual judges, provides publicly available information about court performance, including the transparency and efficiency of court proceedings and access to justice.
