Abstract

The article is devoted to the study of modern international standards in the field of judicial proceedings and the status of judges, which contain provisions on the introduction of special anti-corruption judicial bodies, the formation of the judicial corps and the administration of justice by these courts. The methodological basis of research is a set of general scientific and special methods, in particular, dialectical, formal-logical, comparative-legal and other methods. As a result of the study, the description of modern international standards in the field of judicial proceedings and the status of judges, which contain provisions for the introduction of special anti-corruption judicial bodies, the formation of the judicial corps and the administration of justice by these courts, is provided. It is noted that the rapid implementation of international standards in the national legislation and consistent application in law enforcement practice will help to restore the citizens' confidence in the judicial system, strengthen the authority of the judiciary, establish high criteria of competence, professional ethics and integrity, and effectively implement a specialized anti-corruption court in Ukraine.
