A workshop entitled “Direct Access to Constitutional Courts”
The Constitutional Court of Jordan under the patron of the president Mr. Taher Hikmat and in cooperation with Center for Constitutional Democracy at Indiana University represented by Professor David and Suzan Williams held a workshop on 10/8/2017 entitled “Direct Access to Constitutional Courts” in the presence of court’s members and three judges from the Court of Cassation. Mr .Taher Hikmat presented his opening speech welcoming guests, viewing the origin of the court and the importance of the workshop for the first time in Amman. The one- day workshop dealt with many issues and papers, the most important of which were judicial review tasks (superiority of the constitution), justifications of superiority of the constitution, the direct access to the constitutional courts, the status quo in Jordan (constitution) and the law of the Constitutional Court. The workshop ended with hope for more future cooperation and scientific exchange between the two parties.
