Legislation was passed in 2004 mandating judicial performance evaluation for Romanian judges, to be carried out every three years. Performance indicators were developed by the Superior Council of the Magistracy, which also established review commissions. Metrics are quantitative and qualitative, including disposition rate, the quality of judgments, courtroom demeanor, compliance with the ethical code, and participation at training activities. The review commissions examine court records, observe court proceedings, and interview attorneys, staff, and others. Rankings—very good, good, satisfactory, and unsatisfactory—impact a judge’s career prospects. Critics of this system note it is complex to implement and has had limited impact on judicial performance.
