As previously reported, the CCBE will organise a PECO Seminar in cooperation with the Albanian National Chamber of Advocacy, which will take place on 30 September 2016 in Tirana. The draft programme is now available. The afternoon session of the seminar will focus on the organisation of initial and continuous training and the use of new training methods.
In partnership with the Albanian Bar Association, the CCBE will hold a PECO seminar on 30 September in Tirana, Albania.
The PECO committee is the CCBE’s committee which aims to promote the Rule of Law and support the law reform process in Central and Eastern Europe (see PECO blog for more information).
The afternoon session of the seminar will discuss “The Organisation of Initial and Continuous Training and the Use of New Training Methods” (whereas the morning session will be dedicated to the “Core Values of the Legal Profession and Enforcement Mechanisms”). Speakers from Bars and Law Societies across Europe will explain their training systems and methods. The seminar will also host a presentation of the World Bank’s report ‘Comparative analysis of Bars and Law Societies in selected EU Member States and Serbia’. The objective of the report is to take a closer look at rules governing the functioning of bars and law societies, including their entrance requirements, decision-making and administrative capacities, discipline and inter-bar relations. The Council of Europe will also attend and give a presentation on the ‘Human Rights Education of Legal Professionals’ programme (HELP).
A programme will be available shortly.
