In 2022, Panama’s Administrative Council of the Judicial Career announced a judicial reform plan that will include a process for evaluating judicial performance. The new system will examine judges’ productivity, professional competencies, administrative practices, compliance with ethical standards, and interactions with litigants. A group of judiciary officials was appointed to lead the assessment program and develop competency standards related to the needs of different positions within the courts. Evaluation reports will be used to inform judicial selection, training, and reappointment.
