Judicial training

European judicial training is a key tool for building mutual trust between legal practitioners from all EU countries to ensure the correct implementation of EU legal instruments and to enhance the European area of justice.

Legal practitioners from all EU countries are concerned by EU law and European judicial cooperation at some stage during their practice. They need to be aware of the interaction between EU legislative instruments and national legislation. This is key to guarantee a secure legal environment for citizens and businesses, particularly in the context of increased mobility within the EU.

Training for judges and prosecutors is a priority. European judicial training, however, targets all legal practitioners including judicial staff in courts and prosecutor offices, lawyers, solicitors, notaries, bailiffs and mediators.

In that respect, EIPA’s European Centre for Judges and Lawyers (ECJL) cooperates closely with the national Judicial Training Centres as well as the Council of Bars and Law Societies of Europe (CCBE) and the Council of the Notariats of the European Union (CNUE) and their members, by organising open enrolment training activities and/or cooperating on the implementation of tailor-made training projects.

Furthermore, most of the ECJL’s open enrolment training activities are accredited with several jurisdictions and bars, meeting the requirements of the lifelong learning programme for lawyers.
