The Hungarian Parliamant decided on the establishment of the Court in 1989.
The Constitutional Court - seated in Budapest - is the principal organ for the protection of the Fundamental Law. The Court has an important role in protecting the democratic State governed by the rule of law, the constitutional order, the rights guaranteed in the Fundamental Law and in safeguarding the inner coherence of the legal system. The competence, organisation and operation of the Constitutional Court are regulated by the Act on the Constitutional Court.

Trainees need to gain overall understanding of the operation, competences and organisation of the Court.
