On 12 April 2017 at the request of the JURI and LIBE Committees, the Policy Department for Citizens Rights and Constitutional Affairs will organise a joint workshop on "The training of judges and legal practitioners – ensuring the full application of EU law".

European judicial training is key to facilitate judicial cooperation and to ensure the coherent application of EU legislation, promoting mutual trust between legal practitioners across Europe. In its 2011 Communication "Building trust in EU-wide justice: a new dimension to European judicial training," the European Commission set the objective to enable 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 good practices to overcome them.
