Volume 7 completes the Compilation of the Jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court of Mali from 1995 to 2019
On 17 December 2019, the Max Planck Foundation officially handed over the latest Volume of the Compilation of the Jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court of Mali to its President, Manassa Danioko, in the presence of HE Dr Dietrich Pohl, Ambassador of the Federal Republic of Germany to Mali, HE Yaya Sangaré, Minister of Communication, Nouhoum Tapily, President of the Supreme Court of Mali and Professor Moussa Djiré, Rector of the University of Political and Legal Sciences of Bamako. The 7th volume is comprised of the Constitutional Court’s entire case law for the years of 2018 and 2019. The electronic version of the compilation is also accessible on the Court’s website.
The collection of the case law of the Malian Constitutional Court from 1995 to 2019 features seven volumes and was prepared by the Foundation in order to enhance the knowledge of the Constitutional Court’s case law amongst lawyers and judges, as well as citizens in Mali and beyond. The compilation also aims at facilitating legal research on constitutional standards in Mali.
Every judgment and decision contained in the compilation is preceded by a technical sheet summarising the most important facts and findings of each judgment/decision and listing all the legal norms at stake. Based on the parameters used in the CODICES database of the Venice Commission, the technical sheets also feature systematic and alphabetical keywords, which are listed at the end of each volume in order to facilitate thematic searches. The Foundation’s team completed all technical sheets in close cooperation with the Scientific Committee of the Constitutional Court.
Due to the large demand for additional copies of the collection, the Foundation delivered twenty-five reprinted sets of Volumes 1-6 in addition to a hundred copies of Volume 7 to the Constitutional Court of Mali. Moreover, a donation of forty-five specialised legal books was handed over to the library of the Court.
Apart from the copies handed to the Constitutional Court, a total of twenty-five complete sets of Volumes 1 to 7 of the Compilation of the Jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court of Mali were distributed to several Malian institutions, including the Faculty of Public Law of the University of Bamako and the National Institute for the Training of the Judiciary.
This publication of the entire Compilation of the Jurisprudence of the Constitutional Court of Mali (1995-2019) is the outcome of the collaboration of the Constitutional Court of Mali and the Foundation in the framework of a project generously funded by the German Federal Foreign Office.
