One of the main research areas of Prof.'in. Anne Sanders are the judicial studies. In the field of judicial studies, Anne Sanders focuses on the organization and role of judges and courts at both national and international levels. The foundations and standards of the rule of law and judicial independence in Europe, as they are currently being discussed in connection with Turkey and Poland, play a major role. She has also dealt with this subject as an expert of the Council of Europe. In the project on judicial assistants at courts, Anne Sanders deals with the question of how judges can be effectively supported in their work and what limits the division of labor must have in the context of judicial activity. For this she examines the law of different countries. In this area, Anne Sanders works as an expert for the Council of Europe's Consultative Council of European Judges (CCJE) since 2019 and makes proposals for the development of European standards. In projects on the quality of judges' work, evaluation and promotion of judges, Anne Sanders worked as an expert on Cyprus and Albania in particular.



  • On 18.4.2019 Dr. Anne Sanders was appointed Judge for life at Higher Regional Court of Hamm as a second main office. She will be working there in the 27th Civil Senate.
  • Editor of the International Journal of Court Administration
