The Procedural Law Unit at UNic was established in 2019 with the aim of providing scientific research on procedural law and on private and public dispute resolution mechanisms as well as criminal law (civil, criminal and administrative procedural law). The activities of the Unit include academic research, the preparation of expert reports, the organisation of conferences, seminars, lectures, conferences, discussions as well as trainings of informative and interventional nature in the area of the administration of justice in Cyprus, in legal traditions directly or indirectly related to Cypriot law such as Greek law, European law, and international law. In this context, the Unit’s research profile crosses the boundaries of Cypriot law as it is interested in developments on procedural law in both national and international level. The Unit may also cooperate with other research centres in Cyprus, in Europe and internationally.

The Supreme Court case law translation project

Since November 2020, and following a suggestion by the former President of the Supreme Court, Mr. Stelios Nathaniel, the Procedural Law Unit started a project to translate decisions of the Supreme Court into English. In the first phase, some decisions that are of some procedural interest are translated. Our goal is to help make Cypriot case law accessible and open to the international legal community, which will have both academic and commercial/business benefits. The decisions are translated by research assistants of the Unit and are checked by its directors and any syntactic or other errors in the translation do not bind either the Unit or any third party.
