Specific subsidy granted to the Association of the Constitutional Court´s Lawyers

The allocations contained in Chapter 4 of the Constitutional Court's budget (current expenditure) include those relating to the specific subsidy granted to the Association of the Constitutional Court’s Lawyers. This grant, which has been included as such in the Court's budgets since 1997, amounted to EUR 24 000 in 2009, and subsequently decreased to EUR 20 000 in 2011, to reach EUR 18 000 as from 2013.

Through this grant, the expenses derived from the organization of the annual working meetings organized by the Association in question are financed. The obligations that the Association will assume in receiving this grant are as follows:

  • To certify to the Constitutional Court that these activities have been carried out, by providing the documents, communications and proceedings of the corresponding conferences, in order to be published by the Constitutional Court, if it deems it appropriate, in the form of a summary report.
  • To abide by the auditing operations that may be decided by the Constitutional Court and those that, if any, may be relevant, in accordance with the General Budget Act and the General Subsidies Act.
  • To certify to the Constitutional Court that the amount of the subsidy granted does not exceed, independently or in parallel with the subsidies or aids of other public administrations, or other national or international public or private entities, the cost of the activities that, in accordance with its statutes, the Association of Lawyers performs during the tax year.

As part of the commitments undertaken and for the purposes expressed above, the Association will provide, for each working year, the documentation to attest to the expenses arising from the activities for which the grant is intended.

Traineeships

Chapter 4 of the budget of the Constitutional Court also provides for the financing of periodic training grants. Since 2002, the Court has convened several training sessions in different areas related to its administrative activities. In 2019, scholarships were awarded for comparative constitutional law and the Court’s international activity, library and documentation services, constitutional doctrine and legal translation. In 2020, scholarships were awarded for comparative constitutional law and the Court’s international activity, library and documentation services, as well as constitutional doctrine. The calls are made on a competitive basis and in accordance with the principles of publicity, transparency, equality and non-discrimination, with an allocation of €1,150 per month, for a twelve-month period which may be extended in accordance with the terms and conditions of the corresponding calls.
