E-003817-17
Question for written answer
to the Commission
Rule 130
Nikos Androulakis (S&D)

 Subject:  Erasmus for lawyers
 Answer(s) 

The Athens Association of Trainees and Young Lawyers recently unveiled a proposal for cooperation between the Greek bar associations and those of the other Member States. Under the proposal, trainee lawyers could practise in law firms and offices of another Member State from that where they obtained their degree, which would have multiple benefits for beneficiaries.

It would enable them to enrich their knowledge and acquire experience from different legal systems and, at the same time, it would create the right conditions for the exchange of best practices in the areas of application of European Union law and approximation of national legislations.

— Can such a scheme be funded through Erasmus+ or other financial tools? — Is the Commission aware of other similar schemes for lawyers that are applied in other Member States? — How could the Commission contribute to setting up the initiative?
