Administrative law

The European Commission wishes to make training material available which will be helpful both to legal practitioners for their own use and to the trainers of legal practitioners as a resource for their work in the field of European administrative law.

Administrative law training guidelines (European Judicial Training Network – EJTN)

The administrative law training guidelines are the result of a year‑long project carried out as part of the remit of the EJTN's administrative law sub-working group. Based on a thorough assessment of the areas in the field of European administrative law in which further training is needed, drawing in particular on the results of a survey of judges, prosecutors and judicial trainers, the guidelines represent a diverse collection of legal contributions from members of the EJTN.

The guidelines are intended to serve as an up-to-date authoritative index of the most important legislation, case‑law and relevant documentation in the various sub-fields of European administrative law. They aim to provide a valuable source of information for developing high‑quality training in the field of administrative law across Europe, and also serve as a handbook for judicial trainers and practitioners on the most recent developments in key areas, in particular migration and asylum law, tax law, environmental law and human and fundamental rights. The guidelines do not purport to be a textbook on the topics covered but are instead designed to be a practical and manageable guide which can be put to good use immediately to prepare training courses.

Administrative law training seminars (EJTN)

The training material and video podcasts of training seminars held by the EJTN are available on its website. These relate in particular to asylum law and on environmental law.

Handbook on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration (European Court of Human Rights – ECHR and European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights – FRA)

The handbook on European law relating to asylum, borders and immigration examines the relevant law in these areas, covering legislation passed by the European Union and the Council of Europe. It provides an accessible guide to the various European standards relevant to the questions of asylum, borders and immigration. Produced jointly by the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR) and the European Union Agency for Fundamental Rights (FRA), it is available here.
