Court Clerk

The Court Clerk is the judge’s closest collaborator. They attend the trials and their role is to ensure the smooth running of the trial and to verify the authenticity of the documents drawn up by the judges. A document not signed by the Court Clerk has no legal basis.

They have real control over the proceedings because they transcribe the debates by recording the statements of the persons being judged, draw up a report and record the conclusions of the court.

Beyond the trial, the Court Clerk prepares the files and informs the parties of the trial dates. After the trial, the Court Clerk archives the judgements.
