EU judicial training policy
Training of justice professionals on EU law is an essential tool to ensure the correct and effective application of EU law, to foster mutual trust among justice professionals in cross-border proceedings and to support the implementation of the EU values and principles, such as the rule of law. It aims to enable all justice professionals (judges, prosecutors, court staff, lawyers, notaries, bailiffs, probation officers, prison staff, etc.) to see the role of EU law in their daily practice, give it full effect and secure the respect of rights and obligations stemming from EU law in national and cross-border judicial proceedings.
