Report on European judicial training 2017

On December 14, 2017 during the CCBE Training conference the European Commission presented the Report on European judicial training 2017.

This is the sixth report on training for legal practitioners (judges, prosecutors, court staff, bailiffs, lawyers and notaries) on EU law or on the national law of another Member State.

It is based on the results of a questionnaire sent in 2017 to Member States’ authorities, European networks of legal professionals (including the CCBE) and the main training providers at European level.

The report describes the progress towards the target set by the European Commission in 2011 (Communication “Building trust in EU-wide justice. A new dimension to European judicial training”) of ensuring that half of all legal practitioners in the EU are trained on EU law or on the national law of another Member State by 2020.

The discussion of the report will be organised during the CCBE Training Committee meeting on February 7, 2018 in Vienna.

For the past four years, the Law Society of Ireland has organised a (summer) Legal English and Legal Skills course for foreign lawyers.

The course consists of one intensive week in Dublin (in July), where participants can develop their legal skills (presentation, interviewing, negotiation & drafting) in English. The programme includes a lecture on comparative legal ethics. It is also a good opportunity to see Ireland and meet colleagues from other jurisdictions.

The 2018 course will take place from 16 to 20 July.
