Ukraine Increases Number of Judges in IP Court
The Ukrainian Supreme Council of Justice has recently approved an increase in the number of judges in the Intellectual Property (IP) Court from 21 to 30.
The IP Court, the establishment of which was announced as part of the Ukrainian 2016 judicial reform and became imminent in late 2017, was meant to comprise 21 judges. On July 23, 2018, the Supreme Council of Justice received a request from the head of the State Judicial Administration of Ukraine to increase the number of judges to 30, nine of whom would work in the appellate division of the court. The Supreme Council of Justice approved the request on July 31, 2018.
The increase in the number of judges is likely to improve the quality and efficiency of IP dispute consideration once the IP Court starts operating, which is expected to happen once all the judges are recruited.
