The Training of Judges and Legal Practitioners - Ensuring the Full Application of EU Law

31-03-2017

The workshop, organised by the Policy Department for Citizens' Rights and Constitutional Affairs upon request by the Committees on Legal Affairs and on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs of the European Parliament, provides an opportunity to discuss about the training of judges and of other legal professionals in EU law and in the law of other Member States. The European Commission, in its 2011 Communication on "Building trust in EU-wide justice", set the objective of enabling half of the legal practitioners in the EU to participate in European judicial training activities by 2020. The workshop will be an forum to discuss to what extent this objective is being attained, as well as to understand the existing challenges and good practices that have been developed in the training of several categories of legal professionals.
