Workshop on judicial training

On 12 April, the Policy Department for Citizens Rights and Constitutional Affairs will organise a workshop on "The training of judges and legal practitioners – ensuring the full application of EU law" for the JURI and LIBE Committees.

More details

European judicial training is essential for judicial cooperation and for the coherent application of EU legislation, as well as for the promotion of mutual trust between legal practitioners across Europe. In its 2011 Communication "Building trust in EU-wide justice: a new dimension for European judicial training", the European Commission set the objective of enabling half of all legal practitioners in the European Union to participate in European judicial training activities by 2020. The Workshop will provide an opportunity to discuss, with experts, the current state of play of training of legal practitioners across Europe, as well as existing challenges and solutions thereto.

Under Rule 193 of the Rules of Procedure, a committee is permitted to organise a hearing with experts, where this is considered essential to its work on a particular subject. Hearings can also be held jointly by two or more committees. Most committees organise regular hearings, as they allow them to hear from experts and hold discussions on the key issues. On this page you will find all the available information relating to committee hearings, including programmes, posters and contributions from speakers.


Workshops are organised by the policy departments and administered in accordance with the Financial Regulation. They are not necessarily held in public but may be held during a Committee meeting.

Workshops enable Members to put questions to and exchange views with experts on subjects associated with parliamentary business or subjects of current interest.
